The center educates about HIV/AIDS and prevention. The center is funded through a consortium of faith-based groups led by World Vision.
The first lady also saw Chereso Ministries, a PEPFAR-funded program providing HIV counseling, testing and support for people living with HIV/AIDS. The Center for Disease Control implements anti-retroviral therapy services at 15 locations in Lusaka through AIDSRelief, a constoritum led by Catholic Relief Services. (White House/Shealah Craighead)
