ZHECT aims at contributing to the improvement of the general wellness and health status of people in Zambia through multifaceted interventions. The interventions have until recently been contributing to Zambia’s achievement of the millennium development goals and now to the Sustainable Development goals focusing on health with emphasis on HIV and AIDS, Sexual Reproductive Health, Family Planning, Gender Based Violence and TB. This has been done through the operationalisation of the following objectives:
1. To increase in-depth knowledge and translation of HIV/AIDS information into positive behaviour. 2. To increase access to health services and facilities as well as improve the quality of service. 3. To strengthen the Organizational Capacity of Community Based, Faith Based and Non-governmental organisations working in the area of HIV and AIDS and health in general to carry out interventions more effectively and efficiently. 4. To support political will and commitment to the fight against HIV and AIDS, general health service provision and poverty reduction. 5. To increase resources and capacity within ZHECT for service delivery as well as institutional strengthening and capacity building of Community Based, Faith Based, Non-governmental organisations and other institutions especially those implementing Health related, HIV & AIDS programmes.
