Advocacy

Zimbabwe has been experiencing significant declines in both prevalence and incidence of HIV over the years. From a high of over 29% in 1999 the HIV prevalence rate has fallen to 14.5% in 2016 (Zimbabwe Demographic Health Survey 2015/2016). The fall has been related to a number of factors such as increased promotion and uptake of HIV prevention, treatment and management services.

National AIDS Council is using ADVOCACY to sustain the achievements in the national response and significantly change the course of the pandemicby engaging policy makers to spearhead the creation of an enabling environment for the implementation of HIV and AIDS programmes and services, conducting campaigns and commemorations and exhibition to inform the public on the state of the national response.
