Zambia has one of the highest HIV infection rates in the world with a prevalence rate of over 12.4% among 15 to 49 year olds. The long-term objective of the Zambian Government is to end the HIV threat by 2030. To this end, the current ‘National AIDS Strategic Framework’ focuses on prevention measures especially for young people. Its main emphasis is on comprehensive sexuality education, prevention measures and medical and psychosocial services for young people. In 2013, together with other countries of Eastern and Southern Africa, Zambia affirmed the ESA Ministerial Commitment’ to provide both comprehensive sexuality education and access to youth-friendly health services for young people. According to current statistics, 4% of boys and 6% of girls between the ages of 15 and 19 are infected with HIV. Approximately 15% of young people have their first sexual experiences before the age of 15 and over 16,000 girls dropped out of school in 2014 due to being pregnant. At the same time, young people have very limited access to full and accurate information or to sexual and reproductive health services. In the current context, schoolboys and schoolgirls aged between 10 and 19 do not receive sufficient protection from HIV infection or early parenthood.
On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Government of the Republic of Zambia, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is working to ensure that in two districts of the Southern Province, schoolboys and schoolgirls aged between lo and 19 are better protected against HIV infection and pregnancy.
