http://www.christianaid.org.uk/ActNow/trace-the-tax/ http://www.christianaid.org.uk/whatwedo/africa/zambia.aspx Despite being the 7th largest producer of copper globally, Zambia is still desperately poor and struggles to meet the needs of its population. This film explores the mining industry in Zambia, and how suspected tax dodging by unscrupulous multinational companies is costing Zambia millions in lost revenue. At the same time it looks at the fledgling healthcare system, which can barely provide the medicines, staff or facilities to meet the needs of the average Zambian, let alone those living in desperate poverty. Christian Aid and its partners believe that tax dodging costs the developing world an estimated $160 billion each year in lost revenue -- money that could be us...
Seven countries in Southern Africa are modelling how to deliver integrated SRHR-HIV services in order to improve uptake. This is Zambia's story. The SRH-HIV Linkages programme aims to link HIV prevention, treatment and care with Sexual Reproductive Health Services. While this may appear logical, it is not the way public health clinics are currently organized in these countries. The programme is about making small subtle changes in health care delivery that have a big impact on the lives of ordinary people. It uses the opportunity to provide comprehensive services to any client who seeks health services at the clinics. If they seek HIV testing, they are also offered family planning, antenatal services, cervical cancer and TB screening, and more. The results suggest that the project has le...
An examination of health care in Zambia through the lens of AIDS: the challenges, the Zambian and international response, and the people who provide the care. Will the lessons learned from the AIDS epidemic spur innovations in other aspects of Zambian health care?
Examples of Health Systems Strengthening and Capacity Development for National HIV, TB and Malaria Programmes in Zambia, as a result of partnership between Ministry of Health, Medical Stores Limited, Ministry of Community Development and Mother and Child Health, the Global Fund, UNDP and other partners.
The CSIS Global Health Policy Center produced this video during a visit to Zambia in April 2016. It profiles four young Zambian women who describe the stark realities for adolescent girls and young women that fuel the AIDS epidemic – sexual violence, barriers to education and family planning, and gender inequality. Through their stories and insights, the video illustrates that in order to address the AIDS crisis in Southern Africa we must understand the risks that young women face and work to engage and empower them.
Health experts have long known that lack of vitamin A leads to childhood measles, and blindness, as well as increasing the risks of child deaths and maternal mortality - and so undermining the health and development of many poor developing countries. The problem facing doctors, health workers and government ministries has been how to deliver vitamin A supplements to populations most at risk - and how to help people understand the vital role it can play in protecting their and their children's health. October 2003 Produced by TVE Distributed by Journeyman Pictures

Training community birth attendants in rural Zambia in a simple newborn resuscitation protocol reduced neonatal deaths by nearly 50 percent -- a finding that shows high potential to save lives in similar remote settings, a team of Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH) international health researchers is reporting. Findings published Feb. 3 in the BMJ by the team from the BU Center for Global Health and Development show that training and equipping Zambian traditional birth attendants to perform a neonatal resuscitation intervention led to a net reduction of about 18 deaths per 1,000 live births in the first 28 days of life -- a significant reduction in the overall neonatal mortality rate in Zambia, of about 34 deaths per 1,000 live births.
Zambia's rich mineral resources are one of the country's most important assets. They contribute to national income, exports, employment and government revenue. As the country looks to the future, Zambia faces important choices on how to manage its mineral wealth. There are trade-offs in the design of the mining fiscal regime. Mining inevitably entails environmental and public health risks. Mining firms make choices about procurement that influences the industry's contribution to the Zambian economy. This brief video introduces the World Bank's Fifth Zambia Economic Brief "Making Mining Work for Zambia: The Economic, Health, and Environmental Nexus of Zambia's Copper Mining Economy," which was released in June 2015. It asks how Zambia can uses its mineral resources to help the country achi...
In September 2013, 11 Perth individuals came together as a team to raise money to renovate the malnutrition ward of the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka, Zambia. The riders raised funds required to complete these renovations by being sponsored to ride bicycles from Livingstone to Lusaka in the searing African heat. Heat stroke, dehydration, gastro and fatigue were encountered along the way. The team pulled through and achieved their goals of the ride and the respective renovation. Thanks to the wonderful people and companies that sponsored them. This was the journey of a life time and one that I am so proud to be part of. The relationships that were formed will last a life time! Visit www.hhz.com.au for more information on Health Hope Zambia. Special thanks to Channel 7's Today...
