NEWS & PROJECT UPDATES
The Zimbabwe Medical Project partners physicians, nurses, and educators from Zimbabwe and the United States in a healthcare campaign with a dual mandate to enable long-term, sustainable expansion in quality healthcare. We are partnering in Zimbabwe to eradicate the preventable diseases that devastate families, and helping in the education of tomorrow's healthcare leaders.
Our volunteers began their clinical work in Zimbabwe in 2011 providing screening and treatment for the epidemic of preventable blindness. While providing care for these patients, it became clear that in order to truly achieve a meaningful, long-term, sustainable impact on healthcare, we needed to expand our focus to include other clinical areas of urgent need.
We are proud to be actively involved in partnerships formed between clinicians and educators in Zimbabwe, the United States, and South Africa.These partnerships encompass both clinical and educational initiatives. Preventing and treating adult and childhood blindness, providing clean water and supporting nutritional needs in children and a spectrum of medical teaching initiatives and nursing and physician education.
We believe that such international cooperation between physicians and nurses on the two continents enriches both our societies, while our work helping in the training and education of tomorrow's medical leaders will ensure a bright future for healthcare in Zimbabwe.
