LUSAKA – The U.S. Embassy and Zambian Ministry of Health today announced the U.S. government’s commitment to contribute $402.6 million (7.2 billion kwacha) toward Zambia’s national HIV response in 2023. PEPFAR Zambia worked closely with the Government of Zambia, Global Fund, UNAIDS, World Health Organization, Zambian civil society organizations, and other stakeholders to develop the plan for the 2023 national HIV response. This collaborative process demonstrates the collective commitment of all partners to transparency, accountability, and evidence-based and effective prevention and treatment.
Through six U.S. government agencies, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) funds government, local, and international partners to implement community and facility-based programs on HIV treatment, prevention, care, and education. This funding will bring the United States’ commitment to Zambia’s national HIV response to over $5.9 billion (over 106 trillion kwacha) since 2004.
PEPFAR partners with the Government of Zambia on the national HIV response through a broad range of services in HIV prevention, care, and treatment, ensuring equitable health service delivery with increased access to HIV services for communities across Zambia.
