People living with HIV in Zimbabwe continue to be confronted with corruption and impediments in accessing treatment (which is seldom talked about in our setting). Funders and donors are often not aware that a large proportion of their investment is lost to corruption which is rampant in the health system. The majority of the victims are poor people who live on less that 100USD per day and  are expected to pay a significant proportion of their salary on this monthly “corruption tax”.
