The HOPE Youth HIV Prevention Project contributes to the control of the HIV/TB epidemic in Zambia by increasing the capacity of young people and their community structures to effectively complement efforts to control the HIV/TB pandemic.

In 2019, HIV, TB and Gender Based Violence (GBV) activities were implemented in 12 districts of Central and Copperbelt Provinces by DAPP, and 12 sub-recipient organisations. In collaboration with 32 health facilities, and 58 schools in Central and Copperbelt provinces, the Project trained and worked with volunteers comprising 241 Peer Educators, 250 Gender Based Violence Volunteers/Field Legal Animators, and 119 Community Champions.

The volunteers spearheaded behaviour change among youths in their communities on HIV and TB prevention and treatment. The Field Legal Animators sensitised the communities to stop sexual and gender based violence and supported those who had been violated through home counselling and where needed referral to relevant local and/or district authorities.

Activities were conducted in Mkushi, Serenje, Kapiri Mposhi, Chibombo, Mumbwa, and Shibuyunji districts of Central Province, as well as Chililabombwe, Lufwanyama, Mufulira, Masaiti, Mpongwe, and Ndola districts of Copperbelt Province.

 In 7 districts of North Western Province, HOPE continued promoting distribution of antiretroviral treatment at community level through community access points. A total of 245 clients on ART were supported to adhere to treatment in Chavuma, Kasempa, Manyinga, Solwezi, Zambezi, Mwinilunga, and Ikelenge districts.
