The Youth Program is part of the comprehensive package in the national response to HIV and AIDS. The objective of the youth programme in the national response to HIV and AIDS is to offer HIV and AIDS prevention, treatment and management services to young people in school, out of school and in tertiary institutions. The adolescence are an important group in the national response to HIV and AIDS as they are the window of hope in overcoming HIV and AIDS as they constitute 40% of the Zimbabwean population. The programme ensures meaningful participation of young people in HIV and AIDS programmes, condom programming and sexually transmitted infections management.

The youth programmes are coordinated through Young People’s Network on Sexual Reproductive Health HIV and AIDS program which is present in the country’s ten provinces and is being set up in all the country’s districts.
