Authors: Financing Alliance for Health
In 2018, the Financing Alliance for Health produced a series of fact cards providing key information on health landscapes, financing, and community health systems across eight countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, including Zambia.
Zambia launched their Community Health Assistant program in 2012. In Zambia, CHAs earn approximately $465 U.S. dollars per month, and split their time between communities and health posts. CHAs are responsible for coordinating health care delivery and promotion, supervising medicine distribution, and coordinating Neighborhood Health Communities. The country also utilizes Community Based Volunteers, who are unpaid community members that focus on family planning, nutrition, sanitation, and more.
