Zimbabwe

Country Situation

Adult HIV prevalence (ages 15-49) in Zimbabwe, although still high, declined significantly from 23.7% in 2001 to 14.3% in 2009[1]. HIV prevalence among pregnant women is similar to the general adult population.

Facility coverage of PMTCT programming within ANC services is moderate (74%)[8]. HIV testing among pregnant women increased significantly from 29% in 2005 to 90% in 2010[9] and, in 2011, 78% of pregnant women living with HIV received ARVs for PMTCT[3]. Between 2009 and 2011, Zimbabwe has seen a 45% decline in the number of new paediatric HIV infections – from 17,700 to 9,700[3]. Coverage of early infant diagnosis (14%) was still very limited in 2010[9].

Zimbabwe has adopted WHO Option B+ regimen for prophylaxis, and a national PMTCT scale-up plan (2011- 2015) is in place[10]. Given the high level of ANC and skilled delivery coverage and the current performance of the PMTCT program, Zimbabwe is well placed to achieve Global Plan targets in 2015.

Country Milestones

  • In Progress

    Countries have conducted an expenditure analysis, harmonized expenditure categories as needed, identified financing gaps in their action plans and have develped and begun to implement a strategy increasing financial assistance from domestic and international sources to support the national EMTCT plan.

    National EMTCT plans are costed.

    National guidelines on PMTCT and infant feeding in line with WHO 2010 recommended guidelines on ARVs for PMTCT.

    National annual EMTCT progress report includes community (civil society) analysis of progress and feedback from civil society is reflected in revisions to national EMTCT operational plans. Community engagement milestone has been revised and will be reported in June 2013.

    Baselines for essential commodity needs for EMTCT have been established.

    Relevant support and management capacity has been increased (IATT focal points in place).

    Policy review has been conducted to dentralize and task shift essential HIV activities to the primary care and community levels.

    Country has reported on estimated number of new HIV infections among children averted and number of mothers kept alive.

    Estimated number of new pediatric infections reduced by 50% from 2009 levels in at least 10 priority countries.

    Relevant targets met in at least 50% of districts in the country.

    Every district reports regular supplies of drugs and commodities without stock outs.
