Malaria Partners Zambia

We are pleased to announce the legal formation of Malaria Partners Zambia (MPZ). MPZ will pursue the Copperbelt Zambia malaria elimination project in cooperation with the Government of Zambia, PATH/MACEPA, World Vision, Malaria Partners International (Malaria Partners International) and Rotary Clubs committed to eradicating malaria. Rotary’s role in the project would be to generate funding to train the 3,500 Community Health Workers needed to complement the Government’s elimination efforts in the Copperbelt over the period 2018-2021.

The Man from Chaya – Elias Banda

The Man from Chaya – Elias Banda

Community work is tough and requires a lot of sacrifices. To voluntarily serve members of your community day and night without pay is perhaps the highest form of sacrifice. But this is what community health workers have committed to do every day. Determined to eliminate the deadliest killer of infants and adults alike, our community-based volunteers are resolved and determined to play their part. In all our years of service, perhaps no one personifies sacrifice like Elias Banda. We met Elias Banda on June 4th, 2022.

I had a great learning experience on my recent trip to Zambia. Last month, a group of us spent nine incredibly busy days learning in great detail what goes on behind the scenes, at every level, to train, equip, and deploy Community Health Workers (CHWs) who bring community-based healthcare to rural villages in Zambia.
