The Zvandiri Regional Programme- A case study of south-south learning.

We are excited to share our new publication documenting the work of  Zvandiri. This case study documents the scale-up of the Zvandiri Model from Zimbabwe to nine additional countries in the region. We describe the Zvandiri Model and how it offers a comprehensive and evidence based package of interventions tailored to the holistic needs and challenges of children, adolescents and young adults living with HIV (CAYALHIV).

The findings  present qualitative programmatic and evaluation data compiled from reports and key informant interviews with government representatives and other implementing partners, together with results from a survey with Zvandiri’s Technical Support Unit staff.

The findings demonstrate Zvandiri’s substantial contribution to the lives of CAYALHIV across the region. The success of the Regional Programme has extended Zvandiri’s reach to 96,000 CAYALHIV supported by 3,000 CATS across Zimbabwe and the nine regional countries. Our experience of South-to-South collaboration provides further evidence that the Zvandiri Model not only works, but is transferrable.

This report provides a firm foundation from which Zvandiri will further expand towards our vision for longer term, sustainable impact for CAYALHIV across the region, thus supporting and playing
a key role in the goals of the Global Alliance to end AIDS in Children by 2030. work
