Africaid is a community based organisation in Zimbabwe which, through its Zvandiri programme, seeks to ensure that children, adolescents and young people living with HIV have the knowledge, skills and confidence to live happy, healthy, safe, fulfilled lives.
The Zvandiri programme combines community and health facility based prevention, treatment, care and support services for children, adolescents and young people living with HIV. These services are led by trained, mentored young people living with HIV and integrated within national service delivery.
