Afya Mzuri (“good health” in Swahili) was registered as a Zambian non-governmental organisation (NGO) in 2003, having been established in 2000 as the DFID-funded Zambia HIV and AIDS Business Sector (ZHABS) program, with an initial mandate to provide technical support to workplace employees on HIV prevention, care and support. Over recent years, Afya Mzuri's mandate has expanded to focus on community-led programmes and on all aspects of health and wellbeing, including maternal and child health, communicable diseases and non-communicable disease management.
The organisation is currently recognised as a leading local implementer and partner in Zambia – in the provision of Information, Education and Communication (IEC) materials, community mobilisation programmes, and scientifically evidenced health communications tools. Afya Mzuri is also one of the leaders in the delivery of highly effective workplace programmes which respond to the specific needs of any workplace.
