Zambia

Empowering women and girls with access to sexual and reproductive health services, including family planning and HIV testing and counseling, can be an effective strategy in the drive to achieve HIV epidemic control. In Zambia, ICAP is partnering with the Ministry of Health to test innovative models of service provision and ensure sufficient numbers of well-trained nurses and midwives to support national health priorities. Additionally, ICAP provided technical assistance for the ZAMPHIA HIV population-based survey and an integrated bio-behavioral survey among key populations.
