By providing technical capacity building through trainings, the community is now leading the response against the epidemic and other health demands such as PMTCT and Sexual Reproductive Health. This is the impact the PMTCT project at Rise Community Aid Program (RICAP) in Kafue Zambia is making on local community?s capacity to respond to PMTCT. We now have a strengthened sustainable project structure at community level.
