SUMMARY

Despite significant progress towards reaching HIV epidemic control, Zambia continues to struggle with one of the highest HIV prevalence rates in the world: 12% of persons aged 15-49 are infected, with significant impact among women and men ages 25-34 as well as adolescent girls.

The USAID SAFE: Supporting an AIDS-Free Era Program is reducing HIV mortality, morbidity, and transmission, while improving nutrition outcomes and family planning integration, in three provinces with the highest burdens of HIV: Central, Copperbelt, and North-Western. USAID SAFE works alongside the Government of the Republic of Zambia towards a vision of a nation free from the threat of HIV by 2030.

In partnership with the government, private sector, and civil society institutions at the national, provincial, district, and facility levels, USAID SAFE is establishing service delivery systems where there is unmet need, strengthening existing service delivery platforms, and increasing the government’s ability to manage USAID assistance activities.

The program is implemented by JSI in partnership with Abt Associates, mothers2mothers, and the Catholic Medical Mission Board.
