Expertise across the complete HIV case finding and treatment.

Right to Care Zambia, through the EQUIP grant, has expertise across the complete HIV case finding and treatment cascade in Zambia.

In just over three years, RTCZ contributed significantly to improving HIV and TB outcomes in Luapula, Muchinga, and Northern provinces, where it offers direct service delivery.

Right to Care Zambia Programmes

Our programmes gave over 52,000 new patients access to HIV treatment, returned almost 24,000 patients into care, and reduced the infant positivity rate to under 1%.

Furthermore, in 2020 RTCZ reached over 122,000 young men with voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC), greatly reducing their risk of HIV infection, and was the top performer in VMMC nationally.

Over 80,000 patients were screened for TB, and almost 30,000 TB patients received the treatment they needed to live healthy TB-free lives.

The current RTCZ

The current RTCZ pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) strategy covers both key populations: (female sex workers, men who have sex with men (MSM), people who inject drugs (PWID), people in prisons and transgender people), and priority populations: (adolescent girls and young women (AGYW), adolescent boys and young men (ABYM), pregnant women and breast-feeding women).

The key population groups are often neglected or self-neglect for fear of stigma, discrimination and to some extent criminalisation. RTC offers the full continuum of care of services (prevention and treatment) to these populations by working through both facility and out of facility service points to ensure that no one is left behind in Zambia’s quest to attain epidemic control.

    Treating health seriously, caring, making treatment available in South Africa and abroad.
