It’s a complicated process, but Centre for Infectious Disease Research in Zambia (CIDRZ) is uniquely positioned to guide it. Using our strong technical expertise and years of experience in the field, our strong relationships with the Zambian government, and our ability to leverage funding from multiple international donors, we are uniquely positioned to identify and address health problems in the country and the African region. The CIDRZ approach is effective. We conduct intensive needs assessments to understand the ongoing challenges for the local health systems. We engage relevant partners to design and implement realistic solutions. We monitor our progress towards improved health outcomes, both at the individual and population level. The interplay between each step is critical and the result is a continuous loop that allows us to take past experiences to inform future decisions. Through this process, we have steadily expanded access to care and improved healthcare quality across a range of services. In addition, because our sole focus is on Zambia, we have a nuanced understanding of health systems on the ground and are able to nimbly respond to priorities identified by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Community Development Mother and Child Health.
