CHEST ACTIVITIES & PROJECTS
MAJOR HIGHLIGHTS among other national and regional projects

1. ZIMBABWE HEALTH POLICIES’ REVIEW

Centre for Health Strategies [CHEST] whose main thrust is to review health policies and strategies in the region organized a multi-stakeholder meeting under the theme, Health Policies in Zimbabwe from 1980-2010. Where are we?  to review Zimbabwean health policies since 1980 to date.   The workshop was held at Pandhari Lodge in Harare on Thursday 10th June 2010.

This workshop was held on the premis that health solutions to health challenges in Zimbabwe and the region are addressed within Zimbabwe and the region without necessarily relying on solutions from outside the region.  We are also confident that the capacity to do that exists within the region and those from the region who are in the Diaspora.  So CHEST is determined to mobilise and use those resources.
The workshop therefore addressed health policy issues, the outcomes of which assisted policy makers to remind them of policy gaps that need to be addressed.  The lessons learnt were of benefit not only to Zimbabwe but to the region.
The various health issues were grouped sector by sector.
The Sectors included:

  1. Ministry of Health and Child Welfare
  2. Natpharm
  3. National Aids Council
  4. Medical Insurances
  5. ZIMA
  6. Private Hospital Associations
  7. Universities
