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.

Eliminate Malaria? Are You Kidding?

From time to time, I get that knock on my door and it usually culminates into a long chat about malaria. Talking to different people, young and old, educated and uneducated, family and friends; I have come to find that so many people, do not fully understand malaria.

Strengthening Neighborhood Health Committees In Zambia

Neighborhood Health Committees are the lowest level of the Zambian health system. A step below the clinics, NHCs have the mandate of supervising the Community Health Workers and other community-based volunteers. They are also responsible for identifying and nominating community members to serve as CHWs.
