89-98-96 Zambia on track to meet all the UNAIDS 95-95-95 after exceeding HIV Treatment and Viral Suppression targets
The Zambia Population‐based HIV/AIDS Impact Assessment 2021 (ZAMPHIA 2021) was a household‐based national survey among
adults (defined as individuals aged 15 years or older) conducted between April and December 2021 to measure the impact of thenational HIV response. ZAMPHIA 2021 offered HIV counseling and testing with return of results to the participants and collected information about uptake of HIV care and treatment services.
ZAMPHIA 2021 was the second survey to estimate national HIV incidence and the national and provincial‐level prevalence of HIV
and viral load suppression (VLS), defined as HIV RNA <1,000 copies per milliliter (cp/mL). The first ZAMPHIA was conducted between March and August 2016. The results of these two surveys provide critical information about national and provincial‐level progress toward control of the HIV epidemic.
ZAMPHIA was led by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Zambia Statistics Agency (ZamStats). The survey was conducted with funding from the United States (U.S.) President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) with technical assistance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), ICF, and the University of Maryland, Baltimore(UMB).
The Government of Zambia, local civil society organizations, and international development partners participated in the Technical
Working Group to provide input on survey planning and survey implementation.
