NZP+ Chipata Chapter

The Network of Zambian People Living with HIV/AIDS (NZP+ Chipata) is a district chapter organization for people living with HIV/AIDS which was established mainly to improve the quality of life of people living with HIV and AIDS by pursuing support, communication and representation of its members. The organization is an affiliate to the national office. The network is a non-profit making, non-governmental organization registered under Non- Governmental Organizations.


The chapter is a membership based organization with 2600 members in over 100 support groups. The organization has been operating since 1996 and it has offices around Zambia. Some years ago NZP+ had projects at Chipata prisons where we formed support groups for inmates and officers. We also built a barber shop for inmates and provided farming inputs for them as well as gardening tools. From April 2017 NZP+ is implementing Ubumi's succesful model for nutrition and health amongst children and seriously ill patients in prisons.
