Zimbabwe
Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe, in southern Africa, has 16 million inhabitants with a life expectancy of 60 years for men and 63 years for women. Zimbabwe’s health system, guided by the Health Service Act, is frail due to hyperinflation and political instability. Low access to health care, high teenage fertility, a double burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases, as well as natural and human-made disasters (including frequent disease outbreaks, acute public health emergencies and other health-related humanitarian disasters) impact the population’s well-being. Zimbabwe continued to scale up its HIV prevention, treatment and care programmes through the 2016 ‘Treat All Policy’. The National Health Strategy (NHS) 2016-2020 aims to advance universal health coverage (UHC) as part of broader national efforts to tackle extreme poverty, social exclusion and gender inequity. Zimbabwe joined the UHC Partnership (UHC-P) in 2018, which supports capacity building for human resources for health and strengthening health information systems. In 2019, UHC-P activities will include the healthcare services quality improvement delivery of essential medicines and health technologies.
