Explore the importance of partnerships between NGOs and Governments in ensuring the success of national mandates and policies to benefit communities. This session will highlight the Government of Zambia’s School Health Program, built in collaboration with NGO Healthy Learners, which addresses some of the major health challenges faced by school-aged children and how together they are bridging this gap.
Through the program, schools serve as entry points into the healthcare system by training teachers using best practices from the Community Health Worker model. The successful partnership currently serves over 830,000 learners with a vision of reaching 2.2 million across all ten provinces by 2028.
