The Livingstone Tourism HIV/AIDS Partnership seeks to establish and enhance HIV/AIDS workplace and community-based programs with joint support from the private tourism businesses and government agencies in Livingstone. The Tourism HIV/AIDS Partnership is an innovative initiative targeted at addressing HIV/AIDS in Livingstone, which has one of the highest prevalence rates in Zambia and is a major tourist attraction. Residents and mobile populations in the area are at high risk of contracting HIV.
The Tourism HIV/AIDS Partnership continues to host a series of concerts that call for social and behavioral change to reduce sexual transmission of HIV. HIV/AIDS activities are being implemented in coordination with the U.S. Government, Zambia Ministry of Tourism, Zambia Wildlife Association, Provincial HIV/AIDS Task Force for the Southern Province, District HIV/AIDS Task Forces, and other civil societies. The events include mobile counseling and testing services, HIV information booths, and educational materials. Additionally, Sun Hotel provides a training facility for all HIV/AIDS-related training to the tourism industry, free of charge.
