Zimbabwe National Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS (ZNNP+)
Shungaidzo Mupindu , Itayi Muvandi
Founded in 1992, ZNNP+ is a national umbrella body representing and co-ordinating the activities of PLWAs (people living with HIV/AIDS) support groups throughout Zimbabwe. In August 2001 Sida, entered into an agreement with ZNNP+ to support several programmes within the organisation. During the last quarter of 2001, ZNNP+ was been rocked by internal turmoil attributable to the alleged gross misappropriation and mismanagement of a grant they the organisation received from National AIDS Trust funds. The director was suspended pending dismissal. It was in the light of these events that the Embassy decided to suspend its support to the organisation and carry out an evaluation.
