AN OPPORTUNITY FOR CHANGE

Zambia is a nation of 15 million people in the heart of Southern Africa that boasts rich and diverse cultural traditions, a peaceful democracy, and an extraordinary wilderness.  However, Zambia is in the grips of a healthcare crisis.  Services are grossly underfunded and the Ministry of Health estimates that health services are currently operating with fewer than half of the personnel required to deliver basic healthcare.  

 

The Okanagan Zambia Health Initiative (OkaZHI) is a capacity building organization – developing the conditions for sustainable growth and change. Whether it’s arming individual healthcare workers with new skills or consulting with the Zambian Ministry of Health on policy development and research initiatives.

 

OkaZHI’s aim is to build the capacity of Zambia’s healthcare infrastructure and empower Zambian healthcare workers to deliver the best care possible.
