Strengthening community-based services for children and families affected by HIV: an evaluation of the Zambia Family Program

As the U. S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) pivots its focus to care and treatment, there is strong interest in learning to what extent community-based programs contribute to achieving the public health goals of getting people—including children and adolescents—tested, enrolled in care if infected, and adherent to treatment.


This brief provides an overview of SOAR’s evaluation of the Zambia Family (ZAMFAM) program, designed to improve the care and resilience of children from birth to 18 years of age living with, affected by, or vulnerable to HIV, and their families. The evaluation consists of a benchmark study and a cohort study.
