ZVITAMBO HIV Prevention and Care for Communities, Phase III, in Zimbabwe

Project Information
Description: 
The project involves strengthening the Village Health Worker network in the districts of Chirumanzu and Shurugwi, Midlands Province, Zimbabwe by building capacity and providing technical support to the VHW network and by providing PMTCT-enhanced training. Strengthened VHW networks will specifically enhance PMTCT program quality by improving follow-up and care PMTCT mothers, fathers and infants after delivery. This approach will also serve to create an HIV-friendly community environment in which parents are empowered with information to make decisions for the benefit of family health.
