The USAID SAFE: Supporting an AIDS-Free Era Program (USAID SAFE) works to reduce HIV mortality, morbidity, and transmission, while improving nutrition outcomes and family planning integration. USAID SAFE works with the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ), private sector actors, and civil society institutions at the national, provincial, district and community levels to increase access to ART for HIV positive adults and children, reduce the incidence of new infections, improve Nutritional Assessment, Counseling and Services (NACS), family planning services, cervical cancer screening, voluntary medical male circumcision and increase the capacity of local health institutions to better serve affected populations.
The program operates in Central, Copperbelt and Northwestern Provinces and is implemented by John Snow, Inc. (JSI) in partnership with Abt Associates, Inc. (Abt), mothers2mothers (m2m), and the Catholic Medical Mission Board (CMMB) for a period of five years from 2017 to 2022.
To increase the uptake of HIV services in the provinces of implementation, the Program aims to develop a series of mass communication messages targeted at the various groups who most require the services provided. The first of these messages will be a series of radio programmes on topics such as HIV testing and self-testing, early infant diagnosis, ART initiation and retention on treatment, viral load suppression and testing, cervical cancer, and Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, among other topics.
The programmes will be a combination of pre-recorded segments, and discussion programmes to allow the general public to discourse about the issues and address their questions and concerns.
