Zimbabwe is one of the four African countries to have achieved the UNAIDS 95-95-95 targets. However, significant programmatic gaps remain for selected key populations. Zimbabwe has several legal and policy constraints that hinder these key populations from seeking HIV prevention, treatment and care services. The criminalization of sex work and men who have sex with men are significant impediments to achieving 95-95-95 in the country. In this perspective, we explore how legal and policy constraints affect, in particular, men who have sex with men and female sex workers, who are most affected.
