Zimbabwe implemented an integrated HIV Testing Services (HTS) model which deployed different testing approaches for different populations By Mandy Nyama *What is 90 - 90 -90* It is a concept introduced by the United Nations programme on HIV/AIDS in 2013 as an idea that by 2020, 90 percent of people who are HIV infected will be diagnosed, 90 percent of people who are diagnosed will be on antiretroviral treatment and 90 percent of those who receive antiretrovirals will be virally suppressed. So this means that in Zimbabwe 90% of PLWHIV (People Living With HIV) who are on ART therapy they have suppressed viral load ie the virus is undetectable. Because of ART their immune system is as good as one who is Living without the HIV Virus. Their TCells or white blood cells block the virus from multiplying. According to the National AIDS Council of Zimbabwe (NACZ) the mortality has declined by almost 72 percent in the 10 years between 2010 and 2020. *Strategies used to meet the MDG according to Dr Madzima* Zimbabwe implemented an integrated HIV Testing Services (HTS) model which deployed different testing approaches for different populations. 1).
