Disability Inclusion in VMMC, Family Planning and HIV testing Campaign.
DZT in partnership with Disability HIV/AIDS Trust (DHAT)with support from Progressio, conducted a disability inclusion campaign in male circumcision, HIV testing and family planning. The campaign was held at Harare Gardens attracting over 500 people with disabilities (PWDs). The occasion was graced by UNAIDS who commended such events stating that this will increase SRH awareness among PWDS.
Population Services Zimbabwe and Harare City Wilkins Hospital were on sight offering family planning services and HIV testing respectively. 98 women accessed family planning services whilst 110 people were tested for HIV. Population Services International was unable to offer onsight male circumcision services at the event. However, DZT made an arrangement to refer Deaf people who want to be circumcised to PSI and to assist with interpretation services.
