Treat All initiative: All HIV positive adolescents & young people to get on treatment

Mutare | Recently, Africaid in partnership with Organisation for Public Health Interventions and Development (OPHID) participated at this year’s 9th edition of Jibilika Dance Festival which was successfully held at Meikles Park with support from United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Africaid had the prerogative to sensitise adolescents and young people about the Treat All initiative through Diamond FM to about 1000 people who were enthralled by music and dance which was provided at the scene.

Treat All initiative allows all HIV positive people to get on treatment regardless of their CD4 count. As a recommendation from the previous Treat All meetings which have been conducted, Africaid was tasked to sensitise adolescents and young people in Zimbabwe about the Treat All initiative using adolescent-friendly and peer-led innovative interventions.
