Zimbabwe – Review of Sexual and Reproductive Health Programme

MannionDaniels conducted a review of DFID’s £57 million Sexual and Reproductive Health Programme, including HIV/AIDS, in Zimbabwe in 2014. This involved assessing the technical and value-for-money aspects of the programme, which spanned both private and public sector support, and whose objectives include:

  • Providing over 2.2 million Couple Years of Protection (CYPs), helping avert more than 800,000 unintended pregnancies
  • Providing HIV testing and counselling for more that 400,000 people in priority populations
  • Providing Antiretroviral treatment for 1200 people living with HIV and AIDS, targeted at marginalised populations, including 500 sex workers and their children

The team also designed a business case for re-allocated and new funding for SRH services, and assessed coordination mechanisms and operational issues.

DFID works with other donors in Zimbabwe to provide the Integrated Support Programme, partnering with both the private and the public sectors to provide integrated SRH and HIV/AIDS services.  This includes:  distribution of condoms and other FP commodities, carrying out voluntary male medical circumcision, provision of cervical cancer screening, and providing services for survivors of gender-based violence.
