The European Commission on 24 February 2006 decided to allocate €12 million to the global humanitarian aid plan for Zimbabwe for 2006. This plan aimed to reduce the extreme vulnerability of population groups at particular risk. This included people living with HIV/AIDS (one in five adults were HIV-positive at the time), orphans and other vulnerable children, elderly, widow and children-headed households and internally displaced persons (IDPs), including ex-commercial farm workers and those affected by the government’s urban 'clean-up' drive in 2005.
