Resume:

Projektet vil skabe bæredygtighed for den zambianske organization, IWAWA og udfase samarbejdet med AIDS-Fondet. Gennem kapacitetsopbygning og træning indenfor hiv og aids vil projektet gøre IWAWA i stand til at skabe varige samarbejder med statslige og ikke-statslige organisationer. Dermed vil IWAWA bidrage til god behandling af hiv-positive, spredning af viden om hiv samt bekæmpelse af stigma og diskrimination i Itezhi-Tezhi området I det central Zambia, hvor behovet for støtte til at begrænse hiv-epidemien er stort.
