Launch of the Village to Village- I Know My HIV Status- Do you? 90 x 90 x 90 Campaign in Marondera District

In his remarks, Chief Svosve indicated that it was a special day for everyone to get tested as services were brought closer to the people. “After getting tested people can be enrolled on ART and survive” he said. The National HIV Prevention Coordinator within the Ministry of Health and Child Care, Ms. Getrude Ncube supported the event as she further explains the 90 by 90 by 90 UNAIDS target to eradicate HIV by 2030. She postulates, ‘We no longer want to talk about HIV and AIDS pandemic killing people. This is a village to village campaign as the services are delivered at our doorsteps’’.


PSI and the New Start Center were invited to offer HTS services onsite. Huge crowds responded positively as they willingly visited the tents for HIV testing, following awareness sessions. Chief Svosve and Chief Seke as the role models of the community were the first to get tested. People were responding positively as one of the villagers highlighted that it was a good strategy to reach everyone in remote communities. Couples accessed the services together.
