500 NGOs Receive PEPFAR Support

Zambian FBOs receive support from the US’ PEPFAR Small Grants Programme to implement HIV and AIDS prevention programmes in 2014

More than 500 community and faith-based organisations (FBOs) in Zambia last year received support from the United States’ Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) Small Grants Programme to implement HIV and AIDS prevention programmes and support for orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs).

Acting PEPFAR country coordinator, Tamu Daniel, points out that that the agency’s small grants programme gives community-based organisations (CBOs) the opportunity to grow and thrive.

Daniel states that the small grants for prevention programmes help stop the spread of HIV and AIDS by promoting behavioural changes that reduce the risk of infection, voluntary counselling and testing (VCT), and other effective prevention methods.
