Zim-TTECH is a locally registered health trust established by experienced and passionate public health professionals who have a demonstrated track record in improving clinical services and revitalizing health systems.
Zim-TTECH was established out of the University of Washington’s International Training and Education Center for Health (I-TECH) which has been working in Zimbabwe since 2003.
Throughout the years, I-TECH contributed significantly to the Zimbabwe national response to the HIV epidemic and progress toward achieving HIV epidemic control
I-TECH, with PEPFAR funding administered by US Centers for Disease Control, (CDC) formed a consortium, named the Zimbabwe Partnership to Accelerate AIDS Control (ZimPAAC). It supported the formation of Zimbabwe Technical Assistance, Training & Education for Health (Zim-TTECH) – a locally registered Trust which serves as the managing partner for the ZimPAAC Consortium
ZimPAAC works to rapidly expand comprehensive HIV services towards epidemic control by implementing effective, evidence-based strategies, aimed at addressing key gaps along the continuum of care (95-95-95) for all subpopulations. ZimPAAC provides direct service delivery (DSD), implementation and monitoring of program activities, and technical assistance (TA) activities in Harare, Mashonaland East, West, and Central, and Matabeleland North provinces
Zim-TTECH serves as the managing partner for two consortia:
Zimbabwe Partnership to Accelerate AIDS Control (ZimPAAC) – Incorporating(I-TECH)/ University of Washington, Zim-TTECH, Africaid Zvandiri, Pangaea Zimbabwe AIDS Trust (PZAT), Bantwana World Education and Padare Enkundleni Men’s Forum on Gender. ZimPAAC collaborates with the Ministry of Health and Child Care (MoHCC) on context-appropriate health interventions to strengthen HIV prevention, treatment, care, and support services.
ZAZIC is a partnership between Zim-TTECH and two local implementing partners—Zimbabwe Association of Church Related Hospitals (ZACH) and Zimbabwe Community Health Intervention Research Project (ZiCHIRe). ZAZIC supports Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) services in Zimbabwe
