Preventing HIV Infections in Zambia
Reduce HIV infections across Zambia.
In collaboration with government ministries, the National AIDS Council, traditional leaders and their communities, and the private sector, CMMB played a key role in the Zambia-led Prevention Initiative (ZPI), the broad FHI 360-headed response to the devastation of HIV in Zambia. For this project, CMMB educated families, designed and promoted responses to ensure local ownership, and undertook other prevention activities in North-Western and Luapula provinces. We also built community capacity to access effective, gender-sensitive, high-quality HIV prevention programs, with HIV testing and counseling, male circumcision, and prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV. Finally, at the national level, we provided technical assistance to all project partners nationwide on biomedical HIV prevention and trained all project partners in CMMB’s signature Men Taking Action approach to male engagement.
