Scale Up Plan for HIV Care and Antiretroviral Therapy Services - Zambia

With over one million people living with HIV/AIDS and 20% of these eligible for ART, expanding access to treatment is one of the most pressing challenges in Zambia. Provision of treatment is essential to alleviate suffering and to mitigate the devastating impact of the epidemic. It also presents unprecedented opportunities for a more effective response by involving people living with HIV/AIDS, their families and communities in providing care and strengthening of HIV prevention through increased awareness. Increased awareness creates a demand for counselling and testing and reducing stigma and discrimination.
