“What I like about the Model in Zambia – it keeps the CATS busy, they accept their status and engage with peers – this really helps them to remain strong for themselves. They realise their value and their purpose in helping others. We have seen the Zvandiri Model supports our NSP in terms of reducing new HIV infections. Every CATS intervention is squarely aligned with 95-95-95 goals. USAID here in Zambia is impressed with how the Model is working in the facilities.”

– Esther Ngulube, Social Protection and GBV Manager/Deputy Country Representative, Project Hope, Zambia

“Being a Cat has really helped me a lot whereby I have accepted who I am today. I have come to terms with things that used to bother me. At first, I was bothered by my HIV status, I felt it was a burden. Ever since I became a CAT, everything is fine”

– CATS, Zambia

“I am more confident than ever before. I have become more knowledgeable, I have learnt different skills and I am now able to talk in public! It’s really been a great journey”

– CATS, Zambia

“I have become proud of myself by sharing my story to help an adolescent adhere to ART and become virally suppressed.”

– CATS, Zambia
