Landlocked in southern Africa, Zambia spans a mineral rich and highly diverse landscape. The country is poised for significant global health progress, and both HIV/AIDS infection rates and maternal deaths have seen major decline in recent decades.
Since 2011, we have worked in Zambia in partnership with the Ministry of Health and a wide range of NGOs countrywide to develop the next generation of health leaders there. Over the past years, we have recruited and trained 120 young leaders placed within 20 partner organizations across the country.
Our fellows address critical systems gaps on issues ranging from HIV/AIDS and malaria to data collection and reproductive health. We’re proud of our growing network of Zambian alumni who are the future of health leadership.
- 8 years developing emerging leaders
