Description:Summary sheet: preliminary findings.
The Zimbabwe Population-Based HIV Impact Assessment (ZIMPHIA), a household-based national survey, was conducted between October 2015 and August 2016 in order to measure the status of Zimbabwe’s national HIV response. ZIMPHIA offered HIV counseling and testing with return of results, and collected information about uptake of HIV care and treatment services. This survey is the first in Zimbabwe to measure national HIV incidence and viral load suppression. The results provide information on national and subnational progress toward control of the HIV epidemic.
ZIMPHIA was led by the Government of Zimbabwe through the Ministry of Health and Child Care (MOHCC),
conducted with funding from the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and technical
assistance through the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The survey was implemented
by ICAP at Columbia University in collaboration with local partners, including the National AIDS Council (NAC),
Zimbabwe National Statistics Agency (ZIMSTAT), and Biomedical Research and Training Institute (BRTI).
This project is supported by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through CDC under the terms of cooperative agreement #U2GGH001226.
The PHIA Project is a multi-country project funded by PEPFAR to conduct national HIV-focused surveys that
describe the status of the HIV epidemic. Results will measure important national and regional HIV-related
parameters, including progress toward 90-90-90 goals, and will guide policy and funding priorities. ICAP at
Columbia University is implementing the PHIA Project in close collaboration with CDC and other partners.
