Six community-based organisations have received $90 000 grants from the United States of America, that will benefit 36 people living with HIV/Aids.
Deputy minister of Tourism, Walter Kanhanga said the grants will go a long way in assisting community-based projects.“Small as they may look, most of our people don’t have income. In our case, the grant is for 36 people living with HIV. They will work in two ways, which are nutrition and income through selling some of the eggs. This augurs well with ZimAsset,” he said.

The use of condoms increased by 22 percent in the past two decades owing largely to behavioural change, says Population Services International. PSI country director Mrs Louisa Norman said the increase in condom use had contributed to the decline in HIV prevalence rate. She was speaking at the launch of the new protector plus condom “New Man” by Health and Child care Minister Dr David Parirenyatwa in Harare on Wednesday.
“Of course the reduction in prevalence rate is due to the hard work done by the Ministry of Health and Child Care, National Aids Council and many other partners but protector plus has certainly had a part to play,” she said.
