Zimbabwe AIDS Network is a membership driven organization that was founded in 1992, and officially registered as a PVO in 1994. ZAN is mandated to coordinate Civil Society in Zimbabwe’s response to HIV and AIDS, SRH as well as broader health interventions that include TB and NCD’s. Our primary focus is to provide coordinated approaches to advocacy and policy engagements with policy makers on HIV/ AIDS, TB, SRH and the broader health issues.
ZAN facilitates functional and effective platforms that enable social accountability monitoring and advocacy processes to hold relevant public and private institutions accountable for their role in upholding commitments to addressing HIV and related health issues. The organisation is highly decentralized to ensure national presence with 10 Provincial Chapters and 3 administrative/operational regions.
ZAN has achieved key milestones which include significant contributions on HIV/AIDS and health institutional strengthening of member organizations, advocacy and communication on health-related issue, networking and information management as well as partnership building.
