Zimbabwe HIV and AIDS Strategy for the Informal Economy

The role of the Informal Economy sector in driving the economy is strongly acknowledged, hence the need to safeguard it through ensuring comprehensive HIV and AIDS programmes and services with a targeted approach for women and youth. This strategy is intended to ensure comprehensive HIV and AIDS programmes and services that are tailor made to suit the specic requirements of each sector of the informal economy with interventions focusing more on behaviour change, including the uptake of HIV prevention, treatment, care and support services. The strategy which will be implemented through a coordinated mechanism is aimed at reaching out to all categories of the informal economy by the year 2020 and make the reduction of new HIV infections a historic success.
