The Zimbabwe Civil Society Charter
Sustaining the HIV and AIDS Response and Health Outcomes
In light of the changes in the HIV and AIDS epidemic that have resulted to shifts in the response to the epidemic at national, regional and global level, the Zimbabwe Civil Society Organizations, convened, developed and adopted the charter based on consultations within the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), and other Stakeholders in the HIV and AIDS sector and outcomes of three CSOs’ workshops held in December 2018, in Harare.
The Zimbabwe CSO Charter has been validated in March 2019 and building capacity for policy development, leadership, effective and responsive programming. It is a common response towards addressing the implications of the changing HIV and AIDS epidemic and corresponding challenges facing CSOs in the national response, as well as the urgent need to redefine the focus of CSOs in the health sector and providing them an opportunity to take up emerging community health needs as well as to adapt to new approaches and shifts in funding priorities and mechanisms.
