Background

Overview of the Project

CMMB Zambia anticipates the award of a five-year USAID funded project to be implemented on the Copperbelt and North-Western provinces of Zambia. The goal of the project is to mitigate the impact of HIV and improve the health and wellbeing of VCA through the delivery of high-impact, evidence-informed, and age-appropriate interventions customized for each VCA sub-population using a family-centered approach. The project seeks to improve the social and health outcomes of vulnerable households in high HIV burden districts across two provinces of Zambia (Copperbelt and North-Western) in close collaboration with the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ). The Activity aims to ensure that children are a) healthy by improving access to health/HIV services; b) safe by improving child protection and prevention of gender-based violence (GBV); c) stable by improving household economic security and linkage to social protection; and d) schooled by improving school retention and progression.
