In Zambia, it is estimated that there are approximately 1.3 million orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) who are infected with, or affected by, HIV.  The USAID Zambia Family (ZAMFAM) project provides holistic, needs-based services to vulnerable children, adolescents, and their caregivers.

Through AGIS, USAID is promoting strong and sustainable oversight of public resources to advance better health and education outcomes.

The Open Doors project is focused on increasing access to, and use of, comprehensive HIV prevention, care and treatment services for key populations in Zambia. Globally, key populations are defined as a group who, due to specific higher-risk behaviors, are at increased risk of HIV infection. This includes female sex workers, men who have sex with men, injection-drug users, and transgender individuals.  As a direct result of their lifestyle, key populations are frequently stigmatized and criminalized, which limits their access to HIV and other health services. Across Open Doors project sites, it is estimated that there are approximately 57,268 members of these key populations alone.
