COUNTRY OVERVIEW AND PROJECT BACKGROUND

The goal of HCP Zambia is to support households and communities to take positive health action by strengthening community-based systems and networks, mobilizing religious/traditional leaders and youth, and changing harmful social and gender norms. The program aims to facilitate sustained community engagement in rural Zambia to improve reproductive health while reducing HIV/AIDS prevalence and morbidity and mortality associated with malaria and maternal and child health by using the following strategic approaches:

  • Strengthening the capacity of communities to identify, plan and implement activities to address priority health and social needs
  • Mobilize and support faith-based (and other local / traditional) organizations to adopt key, evidence-based strategies for improving health and social outcomes in Zambia
  • Mobilize and support youth to make positive life choices and contribute to improved health within their families and communities
  • Coordinate and harmonize social and behavioral change communication strategies in support of the GRZ and USAID/Zambia identified health priorities, including changing harmful and social gender norms
