Families and Communities for the Elimination of HIV (FACE HIV) Program

In September 2012, PEPFAR through USAID awarded funding to OPHID for a five-year program, entitled, Families and Communities for Elimination of Pediatric HIV (FACE-Pediatric HIV). The FACE Pediatric HIV program is implemented by a consortium of partners who bring a wide range of technical expertise and over ten years of experience in designing, implementing and leveraging support towards Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission of HIV in Zimbabwe. During the first 3 years of implementation, the program supported delivery of quality PMTCT and Pediatric HIV services across the 65 districts of Zimbabwe.


In 2015, following recommendations from PEPFAR, the FACE Pediatric HIV consortium’s mandate expanded to include scaling up of quality HIV care and Treatment services to all populations in 22 of the high burden districts (333 sites) in Zimbabwe. This resulted in a change of consortium name to “Families and communities for the elimination of HIV (FACE - HIV)”. The FACE HIV care and treatment program supports the MOHCC AIDS and TB program in its commitment to achieve the ambitious Global Treatment targets to have 90% of PLHIV know their HIV status, 90% of people diagnosed and access treatment and 90% to achieve viral suppression by 2020. OPHID provides overall management and strategic direction to the program, collaborating closely with the Ministry of Health and Child Care and the implementing partners.
