Looking For HIV Testing in Zimbabwe? Find HIV Center
In September 2016, AHF and the Zimbabwe Ministry of Health and Child Care signed a memorandum of understanding to implement programs aimed at supporting the national health strategy through various aspects of HIV and AIDS prevention, treatment care and community services. The initial phase involved the setting up of Centers of Excellence at Parirenyatwa and Mpilo Referral Hospitals. This support has now expanded to facilities such as Sally Mugabe Central Hospital, Gweru Provincial Hospital, Victoria Chitepo Provincial Hospital, Masvingo General Hospital, and Gwanda Provincial Hospital. The organization has also expanded to supporting primary care facilities in the City of Harare (Namely Mabvuku Polyclinic, Glen View Polyclinic, and Parirenyatwa Council Clinic), Mutare City (Sakubva Health Centre, Dangamvura Clinic), Gweru City (Mkoba Polyclinic) and Bulawayo (Mzilikazi Clinic and Cowdray Park Clinic). One other supported site is Chikurubi Maximum Prison OI Clinic
