National strategy plans
Zimbabwe strategic plan for health
The vision of the Zimbabwe Ministry of Health and Child Care is to have the highest possible level of health quality of life for all its citizens. This National Health Strategy 2016-2020 – Equity and Quality of Health: Leaving No One Behind sets out the strategic direction for the health sector over the a five year period in order to attain this vision.
The strategy lays out the health agenda for 2016-2020 taking into account the broader policy context that is largely defined by the Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio-Economic Transformation (Zim-Asset) and the Sustainable Development Goals. The current challenges of economic growth worsened by a turbulent global market means that this strategy cannot be business as usual as the country needs to find innovative ways of supporting the health sector. Equally important is the need to ensure that other sectors directly and indirectly linked to health align their programmes and activities to contribute towards a healthy population - hence the ZimAsset’s clusters approach.
