Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-free, Mentored, and Safe (DREAMS)
DREAMS is a global, public-private partnership between PEPFAR, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation,
Girl Effect, Johnson & Johnson,
ViiV Healthcare, and Gilead.
The program seeks to reduce new HIV infections in adolescent
girls and young women (AGYW), who are between 10-24 years old, across 10 sub-Saharan
African countries. DREAMS is designed to meet the complex needs of AGYW by helping them
become more Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-free, Mentored, and Safe.
In 2021, both Z-CHECK and CIRKUITS received funding from
CDC to implement DREAMS in Zambia.
