ZUKHWA meeting, Lusaka, Zambia

The Zambia UK Health Workforce Alliance ZUKHWA, is hosted by the Global Health Academy, University of Edinburgh, Scotland.   Dr. Liz Grant, Director, and colleague Viki Tayler, are currently in Zambia exploring capacity for partnering on strengthening health professional training and research.

Our Chitambo project partners, Levi and Consider were invited to a meeting of some of Zambia's most senior nurses, at the Intercontinental Hotel, Lusaka.  Here they heard about  plans to develop a model to guide Zambian nursing services, start a mentorship program for trained nurses, and strengthen research processes.   Areas of interest included Education, Leadership, and Research.

Levi and Consider had the opportunity to report on our Scottish Government-funded Small Grant Project on 'Strengthening Emergency Care Communications in Chitambo District' and, by all accounts, they were the usual  superb ambassadors.

Here are Consider's photos from the ZUKHWA meeting:
