Random HIV testing Starts in Zim

The random door to door HIV and Aids testing six month campaign recently began in Binga, Zimbabwe.
The survey is an initiative led by the Ministry of Health and Child Care in collaboration with the National Aids Council, Zimbabwe National Statistics Agency, Biomedical Research Training Institute and international Partners such as ICAP.
The campaign aims is to measure the impact of Zimbabwe’s HIV prevention, care and treatment services. The public is being urged to take part in this campaign so as to help provide evidence that is critical to help plan future campaigns.

During the launch, Cain Mathema the Matabeleland North Minister of State for Provincial affairs noted that the results would determine the impact of Aids and HIV interventions.
“It’ll give us an opportunity to determine the interventions that were and are still being done as well as the gaps that are there. With this information, we’ll be in a position to direct and redirect our efforts and energies towards those interventions that will bring the best desirable results,” he said
