The Centre for Sexual Health and HIV AIDS Research Zimbabwe (CeSHHAR-Zimbabwe) was registered as a Trust in January 2012. Previously known as the Regai Dzive Shiri Project, which has operated in Zimbabwe since 1999, CeSHHAR Zimbabwe houses a number of HIV prevention and sexual health research and programmatic projects. The CeSHHAR team comprises epidemiologists, social scientists and public health specialists working in all provinces of Zimbabwe, supported by a strong data department.
CeSHHAR also has a strong commitment to strengthening research capacity among Zimbabwean graduates. Their vision is to be a centre of excellence in research, education and capacity strengthening for sexual and reproductive health and HIV/AIDS, and their mission is to support development of evidence-based reproductive health and HIV programming and policy making in Zimbabwe through collaborative research, education, capacity building and community engagement.
