Accelerating Elimination of Pediatric HIV in Zimbabwe








In late 2015, CIFF awarded a two-year costed extension to EGPAF for the “Accelerating Elimination of Pediatric HIV” project to support the government of Zimbabwe in sustaining systems and services developed over the past five years which have accelerated the elimination of pediatric AIDS in Zimbabwe. The purpose of the grant is to continue to assist in reducing the incidence of HIV infections in children and, reduce maternal and child mortality through supporting the national PMTCT program in Zimbabwe. This project supports: 13 quality improvement district focal persons in the 26 districts not supported by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR); and technical assistance, guidance and advocacy at the district and national level in support of the elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV and accelerated pediatric HIV care and treatment in Zimbabwe.
