May 1, 2003

The Zimbabwe Ministry of Health and Child Welfare, the US Agency for International Development and Population Services International-Zimbabwe launched an intensified HIV/AIDS campaign in the workplace through their New Start Centers by offering free voluntary testing and counseling services during the Workers Day period (May 1-10). The annual event targets men who make up the majority of workers in industries. The sponsoring agencies believe that workers should play a pivotal role in the HIV/AIDS fight. PSI-Zimbabwe said on average 9,000 people are now visiting the centers compared to 4,500 last year. In March, 8,000 people went for testing and counseling at New Start Centers throughout the country.
