SAYWHAT in partnership with OXFAM Canada implemented the HIV and AIDS Support Project (HASP) in Chinhoyi University of Technology (CUT), Bindura University of Science Education (BUSE), Kushinga Pikelela Farmer Training Centre and Hillside Teachers’ Training College. The HASP implementation was informed by the SAYWHAT Assessment Report on access to SRH service and information of 2009-2010 which identified various gaps in SRH programming and students’ SRH needs. HASP 2012-2013 phase was implemented under the following strategic objectives:

  • To create sustenance of the HASP initiatives through increased ownership, learning and sharing amongst stakeholders in the 4 colleges;
  • To promote positive behavioural change through mobilizing wider student participation in the HIV, gender and livelihoods initiatives under HASP in the 4 colleges;
  • To promote access to accurate and comprehensive information on sexual and reproductive health including HIV;
  • To reduce female students vulnerability and promote assertiveness through the web for life1 driven initiatives.

To form a solid foundation that informs SRH response in the project, SAYWHAT conducted a HASP Research Challenge. The objective of the HASP research challenge were:

  • To generate evidence on the nature and context of SRH challenges faced by students in tertiary institutions in Zimbabwe and;
  • To generate and share information on SRH opportunities for programming in tertiary institutions.
