Impact statement

Over the years, HAZ has served Zimbabweans ranging in age from 1 year old babies, all the way to adults.  Our aim is to impact family units affected by HIV/AIDS, so we serve both males and females equally.  Our past activities have included a baby formula project, which delivered powdered baby milk to orphaned infants for one year, in-kind donations to single HIV positive mothers in Bulawayo, placement of  HIV patients  into established treatment facilities in Bulawayo and Harare, and direct treatment of HIV positive patients in Bulawayo and Harare, through our Clinical Services Program.

Funding Needs

We are transitioning our patients to the new HIV/AIDS treatment regimen recommended by the WHO guidelines of 2010. The new drugs will now cost us about US$20 per patient, per month, compared to the prior cost for the old regimen, at around US$7 per patient, per month. We face a funding shortfall of US$ 6,000 per year, just to purchase medication for all the patients currently in our program. On 1 April 2011, Zimbabwe started phasing out the combination antiretroviral treatment (ARV) Stavudine, Lamivudine and Nevirapine as its first-line option for the national programme, replacing it with the less toxic Tenofovir-based regimens for adults and Zidovudine-based regimens for children, as recommended by the 2010 WHO guidelines.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"The recent global economic downturn has brought about very difficult challenges to our operations.  As a result, our current efforts are focused on sustaining the HIV patients within our Clinical Services Program (CSP).  We have had to shut down our two offices in Zimbabwe, as a cost-saving measure, and have reverted to an all-volunteer, non-paid skeletal staff, in order to ensure that we are able to continue delivering life-saving medications to our patients in the CSand are relying solely on small donations, personal donations from some of our staff, and fundraisers.  Any support that you can render to our efforts would go a long way in relieving some of the difficulties we are currently facing in our efforts."
