The Manicaland Centre is a major collaborative scientific HIV/STD Prevention research initiative that has been underway in rural areas of eastern Zimbabwe since the early 1990s. The Manicaland Project has one of the largest prospective population-based surveys in Africa, producing numerous data, reports and academic papers tracking the spread, impact and control of HIV/AIDS in Zimbabwe. 

The principal collaborating institutions in the project are the Biomedical Research and Training Institute in Harare and Imperial College London.


The project has produced a large quantity of data, which may be of interest to other researchers in this field. The data has contributed to dozens of research papers, including articles in Science, The Lancet and PNAS (the project has generated close to 200 academic publications and reports).
