The Race to End AIDS and COVID-19: How edutainment and a rallying call to run for a cause boosted HIV prevention and COVID-19 vaccination uptake in Zambia


In Zambia, girls and young women ages 15–24 and men ages 20–34 years are among the most vulnerable to HIV (ZAMPHIA 2019). COVID-19 has decreased access to HIV testing and treatment services (Ministry Of Health [MOH], Jan 2022). In response, the USAID ZAM-Health and DISCOVER-Health projects, implemented by JSH and JSI respectively, in collaboration with the MOH and National AIDS Council as part of the Zambia Ending AIDS campaign, designed a #Run2EndAIDS #Run4COVIDVaccination event to promote COVID-19 vaccination and HIV services uptake among young people. This abstract was shared at the AIDS 2022 Conference.
