The move has been hailed by the Gays and Lesbians Association of Zimbabwe (GALZ). NAC Monitoring and Evaluation director, Amon Mpofu said

We are trying to help the minority community so that they can access medical services after realising that they have been discriminated against. This is part of our programming in the first against the spread of HIV and Aids, as we go towards having a new zero HIV infections. Here they will be able to discuss their health-related issues, peer education and pick condoms among other issues that affect them daily.
