The HIV/AIDS Expanded Support Programme aims to strengthen and broaden Zimbabwe's response to HIV and AIDS through a multi-donor program of support. Focusing on the provision of an integrated package of prevention, treatment and care activities in sixteen selected Districts, the Programme complements support to Zimbabwe from the Global Fund for AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
The Programme aims to reach poor and vulnerable populations in Zimbabwe and does this in an inclusive way by supporting the delivery of services in currently un-served areas. In each district where the Programme operates, civil society engagement and targeted activities also ensure marginalised and vulnerable groups gain access to services.

|Progress and Results Achieved|
|Results as of July 2011 include: 72,000 people living with HIV/AIDS who need treatment are receiving antiretroviral therapy; over 9 million people have been reached through community HIV prevention programs thanks to behaviour change activities conducted in 26 districts in Zimbabwe with funding from this project and from the European Commission. These efforts have contributed to increased access to comprehensive HIV treatment, increased adoption of safer sexual behaviour and reductions in risky behaviour (by a wide range of Zimbabweans including most-at-risk populations). The ultimate result has been reduced transmission and impact of HIV and AIDS in Zimbabwe.|
