What is Peers2Zero?

Paediatric-Adolescent  Treatment Africa (PATA) and the African Youth Positives Network (AY+), as consortium partners, launched Peers2Zero (P2Z) in 2016. P2Z aims to improve access to effective treatment and care for adolescents and young people living with HIV (A/YPLHIV). P2Z builds the capacity of both PATA and AY+ networks, bringing frontline health providers and young people living with HIV together, to jointly plan, deliver and evaluate adolescent-friendly HIV services (AFHS).  P2Z also links AYPLHIV to national networks so that they can build their advocacy skills and advocate for change. P2Z quality improvements have been initiated in Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Swaziland.

The P2Z website serves as a platform to showcase the advocacy achievements of peers, but is also intended as a tool for motivation and a hub of resources so that all A/YPLHIV have the materials and support they need to create their own advocacy messages and campaigns.

The Dar Es Salaam Peer Supporter Declaration was created during a 2016 Youth Summit, where A/YPLHIV from across Africa committed  to playing a role in the Fast-Track strategy to end AIDS by 2030, including 95-95-95, 200,000 new infections among adults and zero discrimination
