CHEST ACTIVITIES & PROJECTS
MAJOR HIGHLIGHTS among other national and regional projects

3. TOWARDS HARMONISING HIV and AIDS POLICIES and STRATEGIES IN ZIMBABWE

CHEST has played a pivotal role in proposing changes with the sole aim of creating an enabling legal and policy environment through harmonization of various existing HIV and AIDS policy and strategy documents.  CHEST produced a document under the mandate of the National AIDS Council; it consists of extracts of some of the key Zimbabwean laws and statutes that are either directly or indirectly linked to HIV and AIDS prevention, care and treatment issues and the proposed recommendations.

CHEST believes that it is absolutely essential in order to achieve universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support and to demonstrate signifi cant progress towards the Millennium Development Goals. Forthright leadership, courage and compassion are required, particularly from legislators, the judiciary and law enforcement agencies in the drive towards a multisectoral approach to fighting the epidemic. Policy and law reforms should be geared towards establishing improvements to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support services to ensure equitable access, and to ensure services which are responsive to the specific needs of all infected and affected people. Legal environments that are protective and empowering can help combat stigma and underpin health promotion efforts that rely on the voluntary cooperation of populations in changing behaviors and accessing prevention, testing, and treatment and care services.
