Through its Zambia Led Prevention Initiative, AAH Zambia has been working in Kawambwa district to contribute to the reduction in number of new HIV infections. Its areas of focus were biomedical intervention, counseling and testing and door to door approach for easy access to CT services as an entry point to other HIV/AIDS interventions. Other non-biomedical activities to reduce HIV transmission were also put in place for instance community sensitization on dangers of alcohol and substance abuse, ABC+ and focus on Most at Risk Populations such as commercial sex workers, uniformed personnel and mobile workers. AAH received support from local leaders; clinic in charges and volunteers who played a key role in messaging for key audiences. By the end of project period majority of the audiences had been reached with messages on CT, alcohol, ABC+ and targets met.
