Zambia Prisons Health Systems Strengthening Framework Launched with signing of MOU between Government and CIDRZ

A momentous milestone was achieved on 12th May 2015 at the launch of the Zambia Prisons Health Systems Strengthening (ZaPHSS) Framework when the Memorandum of Understanding between the Government of the Republic of Zambia and CIDRZ was signed by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs, Dr Chileshe Mulenga, the European Union Ambassador and Head of Delegation to Zambia, Mr Gilles Hervio, and CIDRZ CEO, Dr Charles Holmes. The MOU cements the relationship between CIDRZ and the Ministry of Home Affairs and Zambia Prisons Services to work together to develop and capacitate a prison health system that will plan, manage and implement improved health services in Zambian prisons.  At the signing event, Dr Charles Holmes remarked “that the signing of the MOU today does not represent the beginning of a partnership between the Zambian NGO CIDRZ and the Government of the Republic of Zambia, but represents an important milestone that confirms CIDRZ’s commitment to continue collaborative work with government and other key stakeholders to sustain the implementation of the Health Systems Strengthening task in Zambian Prisons.” The ZaPHSS project is funded by the European Union.
