Health and socioeconomic well-being of young PLHIV one year after implementation of the ZAMFAM Project

The U. S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and U. S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) are supporting the Zambia Family (ZAMFAM) project to strengthen comprehensive, integrated service delivery and support to children living with, affected by, or vulnerable to HIV/AIDS in the Lusaka, Copperbelt, Southern, and Central Provinces of Zambia. This Zambian study examined whether participation by HIV-positive children and their caregivers in an integrated, community-based intervention was associated with greater improvements in child and household well-being. SOAR researchers found that young people living with HIV continued to do well in adhering to treatment and staying in care. But food insecurity, financial instability, sickness, and school attendance remained major problems, with little change over the one-year period.
