Sexual & reproductive healthcare for adolescents in Harare (Zimbabwe)

Zimbabwe

The economic situation continues to decline with very little funds available for public expenditure and social services. As a result, the health sector faces numerous challenges, including shortages of medical supplies and essential medicines.

We run projects in partnership with the Zimbabwean Ministry of Health and Child Care (MoHCC), providing treatment for HIV, tuberculosis (TB), non-communicable diseases and mental health issues.

While HIV prevalence has decreased from 30 per cent in the early 2000s to 15 per cent today, there are still major gaps in services, such as the availability of routine viral load monitoring and second-line antiretroviral (ARV) treatment.

We offer comprehensive support to victims of sexual violence and also comprehensive services for adolescents in the urban district of Mbare.

In Epworth polyclinic, a comprehensive package of HIV, TB and multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) care is adapted for all ages and cervical cancer screenings and early treatment strategies are provided for all HIV-positive women.
