Noel Mwakilima, a Community Health Assistant, provides care to his rural community in Zambia at the Manyemunyemu Clinic, which serves more than 3,000 people. Funded by the UK Department for International Development and trained by Clinton Health Access Initiative, the Community Health Assistants are the Zambian government’s response to the country’s health worker human resources crisis. They are a new cadre of paid healthcare workers, developed specifically to serve Zambia’s most remote communities, where no health services were previously available. Over the next five years, CHAI will support the training of approximately 3,000 Community Health Assistants to reach even more rural communities.
