There are many PIRATES trying to steal and destroy these treasures - HIV, sexual abuse, violence, and malnutrition. The KidzAlive team from Zoë-Life are on a mission to find and protect these valuable children.

KIDZALIVE IS A CHILD-CENTERED, HOLISTIC MODEL DEVELOPED TO:

- Support primary caregivers with information, care and disclosure support
- Capacitate health facilities and communities to provide linkage to care, adherence and psychosocial support to children and their families
- Help children, to understand their illness or abuse using age-appropriate language and fun tools

Laying good foundation for mental health
KidzAlive has been by the South African National Department of Health as part of the Adherence Support Strategy and Paediatric Blueprint for Action.
The KidzAlive program is offered to organisations and people who have a desire to, or are currently working with children.
Zoë-Life offers training and post training support through preceptorship and mentorship to implement the KidzAlive programme.
KidzAlive resources kits, manuals and tools are available as part of the training offered.
FOR HIV & TB HAS GONE DIGITAL!
The KidzAlive Talk Tool app has been adapted from our original paper-based HIV testing, counselling and disclosure tool that was developed in 2009.
Leveraging mobile technology and creative storytelling, to enhance HIV prevention, care and treatment for children and adolescents, the KidzAlive Mobilized program aims to help fill the gap.
Using wireless technologies, the program trains healthcare workers and empowers HIV-exposed and -infected children and adolescents, and their primary caregivers, to overcome barriers that prevent children from receiving HIV testing and treatment and to set them on path to a health future.
We are currently embarking on a scale-up research project with
passionate and reliable KidzAlive Champions across South Africa.
