Legally established in Zimbabwe in 2019, Zimbabwe Health Interventions (ZHI) is a non-profit human development organization, registered as a Trust under the Zimbabwe Deeds Registries Act (Chapter 20:05). Through the United States Government’s Presidential Emergency Plan for Aids Relief (PEPFAR) funding, ZHI implemented the Zimbabwe HIV Care and Treatment (ZHCT) and DREAMS projects in various districts across Zimbabwe through a sub award from FHI360 . ZHI is now implementing two USAID-funded projects namely; The Accelerated and Comprehensive HIV Care for Epidemic Control in Zimbabwe Project (ACCE), formerly the Zimbabwe HIV Care and Treatment Project (ZHCT); and; the Re-Ignite, Innovate, Sustain and Empower (RISE) Project, formerly the Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS Free, Mentored and Safe (DREAMS) project.
Who We Are
The vision of ZHI is to see the populations we serve live with optimal health, well-being, and self-sufficiency.
Our mission is to develop and deliver innovative and sustainable high-impact, integrated health interventions to the communities we serve, while working with and strengthening existing institutions.
ZHI was established in 2019 by a group of Zimbabweans with the aim of providing local solutions to the human development challenges in the country through harnessing their various skills and expertise. Having successfully managed development projects at FHI360, this group of young visionaries sought to leverage on that unique experience and their strong capacity to establish a sustainable local entity which would continue implementing programs to complement the Government of Zimbabwe (GoZ)’s efforts. ZHI is legally registered as a local non-governmental organization (NGO).
Where we work
ZHI is currently implementing the ACCE project in Buhera, Mutasa, Mutare, Makoni , Chipinge, Gokwe South, Kwekwe, Mberengwa and Gweru districts while the RISE project is being implemented in Gwanda, Matobo, Insiza, Beitbridge, Bulilima and Mangwe, Bulawayo, Gweru and Mazowe districts.
