Zimbabwe HIV prevention shadow report


Zimbabwe is also making steady progress in reducing new HIV infections and has also taken the lead in Africa and beyond, by galvanising political commitment to HIV prevention. Again, civil society organisations are heartened by initiation of new size estimation studies and proposed minimum service packages, which show an increased focus on key and priority populations. Financing for HIV prevention programming remains an issue and the government has been reluctant to explore new social-contracting mechanisms that would allow for greater involvement of civil society in the monitoring and provision of prevention services.
