The USAID-funded Z-CHPP, led by Pact Inc., is designed to increase adoption of high impact HIV services and protective behaviors among at-risk populations. The project targets six provinces of Zambia covering 25 districts with a key focus on adolescent girls, young women, people living with HIV, discordant couples, migrant workers, and other high-risk groups. USAID Z-CHPP will engage stakeholders in tailored, evidence-informed, and community-based behavioral programs.
Plan's contributions to the project include identifying and mitigating key determinants of risky behavior among priority populations by expanding community-based behavioral interventions, as well as engaging supporting community gate keepers and other influential leaders. Plan will also contribute in strengthening the linkages between community- and facility-based services in order to increase completed referrals from community programs to high impact services. In addition to these objectives, Plan has a lead role in addressing gender norms and strengthening community action by promoting positive male role models and raising awareness of young women's vulnerability to HIV and Sexual and Gender-Based Violence. By supporting the Government of the Republic of Zambia in reducing new HIV infections and developing local community and district level solutions, USAID Z-CHPP will assist Zambia in reaching the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets.More
