Africaid Zvandiri collaborates with The World Health Organization, Ministries of Health, implementing partners, donors and key stakeholders in an effort to build south-south bridges, share experiences and layer best practices to provide adolescent friendly health services, save lives and contribute towards ending the HIV pandemic. The aforementioned groups focus on reviewing country specific status of adolescent HIV services; receiving and incorporating technical updates from WHO on differential services for adolescent living with HIV; sharing experiences and Zvandiri best practices; and finally developing national collaboration to accelerate HIV services.
