WAD 2016_2


CIDRZ made a strong showing at this year’s World AIDS Day (WAD) Commemoration that took place in Lusaka under the global theme of “Hands Up for HIV Prevention.” Because knowing one’s HIV status is the necessary first step  CIDRZ Community HIV Voluntary Counselling and Testing (VCT) outreach teams provided free, confidential  VCT.  Meanwhile staff from the CIDRZ Cervical Cancer Prevention Programme of Zambia and Breast Cancer Prevention Programme of Zambia and the Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision provided sensitisation and information to WAD attendees.


The CIDRZ stand was honoured to receive a visit from the Honourable Dr Chitalu Chilufya, Minister of Health. Musonda Musonda, Head of Community Programmes hosted the honourable Minister and his entourage and detailed the type of HIV-related programmes for men, women and children that CIDRZ supports through technical assistance and directly provides as part of our vision “to see a Zambia and a region in which all people have access to quality healthcare and enjoy the best possible health, including a life free of AIDS.”
