In recent years, the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ) has made some significant improvements in health outcomes. The country is on track to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) for hunger, universal primary education, gender equality, and HIV/AIDS. The country is one of the hardest hit by the global HIV epidemic, with an adult prevalence of 13.5 percent (UNAIDS). HIV prevalence among youth has declined significantly in recent years, particularly among women ages 15 to 19, whose prevalence declined from 18.5 percent in 2002 to 8.5 percent in 2007. The modern contraceptive prevalence rate (MCPR) in Zambia has steadily increased since 1992, reaching nearly 33 percent in 2007, according to the Zambia Demographic and Health Survey (DHS).
