Umguza District gets tech boost in fight against HIV

Story by Yolanda Moyo

THE Zimbabwe National AIDS Council (NAC) has stepped up efforts to reduce HIV infections by equipping women with low-cost digital devices under their “Sister to Sister” programme.

This initiative is meant to empower women with the tools and knowledge they need to promote healthy living.

The Sister-to-Sister programme has been a cornerstone of NAC’s strategy, providing a safe space for women to discuss sexual health issues, and access essential services like HIV testing and counselling as well as preventative measures.

Now the programme has gone a step further by incorporating mobile phones with Saziso Mpofu, a 24-year-old mother of two from Umguza District, a shining example of the programme’s impact.
