Zambia: Overcoming Barriers to Prevention
By EGPAF | February 14, 2014
The infographic above details the barriers that prevent Zambians from accessing HIV care and treatment services, but these roadblocks are not limited to just Zambia.
Around the world, weak health systems, stigma, and discrimination prevent people living with HIV from gaining access to lifesaving treatment.
Fortunately, these barriers can be broken.
In Zambia, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) addresses these issues by collaborating with community health organizations to provide comprehensive HIV services and early childhood development training.
Through our program, EGPAF-Zambia has provided prevention of mother-to-child transmission services to more than 1 million women, and enrolled more than 300,000 clients into HIV care and support programs.
