Overview

The people of Zimbabwe have faced several crises in the last decade: economic free-fall and disintegrating public services, food and fuel scarcity and a number of health emergencies.

A 2008 power-sharing agreement created hope for change but the new Government of National Unity still faces significant challenges in re-starting the country’s economy and delivering quality public services to its people.

The International Rescue Committee is responding with the Ministry of Health and Child Welfare to provide clean water and sanitation services, and to make sure that hundreds of thousands of refugees have the basic tools and services they need to stay healthy and move forward.

How we help
  • The IRC continues to improve access to high-quality health care and educate people about the importance of good hygiene and sanitation to keep cholera and other disease under control.
  • Students have embraced the importance of healthy living and have started school hygiene clubs to educate others and help bring in clean water and better facilities.
  • The IRC has expanded its work to spur economic recovery and development for Zimbabwe’s future growth.
  • The IRC works closely with the government, local community organisations and local authorities, creating institutions to maintain Zimbabwe’s improved health and development.
