« Back to Where We Work

Zimbabwe

ICAP began working in Zimbabwe in 2015, partnering with the Ministry of Health and Child Care (MOHCC) to conduct ZIMPHIA, a population-based HIV survey.

Our work has expanded since to include capacity building across the health system to collect and use strategic information that can guide Zimbabwe’s national HIV response.

Current Programs

HIV Impact Assessment Survey (PHIA Project)

ICAP is providing technical assistance to the MOHCC to conduct the Zimbabwe Population-based HIV Impact Assessment (ZIMPHIA) survey to assess HIV prevalence, incidence, and access to prevention, care, and treatment services. The survey includes household-based interviews and HIV counseling and testing for adults and children. Survey findings will be used to assess the impact of Zimbabwe’s HIV response at the national level and to help guide and target future investment and programs. (funded by PEPFAR through the CDC)

Strengthening Strategic Information for Health

ICAP is providing technical assistance to strengthen epidemiology and strategic information (SI) to inform evidence-based HIV programs and policy. Activities aim to support the MOHCC to plan and coordinate SI activities, improve monitoring and evaluation, and enhance surveillance systems to characterize the HIV epidemic and effectiveness of the response. The scope of work also includes strengthening human resources to support country ownership of sustainable SI activities.
