To promote global health research as a model and a driver of collaboration, partnership and equity in the generation and use of new knowledge for improving health and well being in Zambia and globally.

Established in June 2016, the Zambezi Ecohealth Partnership (ZEP) is a registered non-governmental initiative of multiple partners

These partners include the government of the Republic of Zambia, through the Western Province Health Office, the University of Barotseland, the University of Lincoln (UK), the University of Aberystwhyth (UK), the University of Waterloo, and the Canadian Coalition for Global Health Research. 

ZEP researchers and practitioners aim to address two main goals: to provide evidence for addressing the priority health and well-being problems of those living in western Zambia; and to strengthen the resilience of the health system and related sectors which have been further threatened by the effects of climate change.

Steering committee

Early discussions about ZEP involved the Zambia Ministry of Health (through the Western Province Health Office), the University of Barotseland (UBL) and the Canadian Coalition for Global Health Research (CCGHR), along with some associate partners. In accordance, the ZEP Steering Committee works to support the evolution of this organization into a comprehensive, openly accessible, and integrated information network that will provide evidence for health system improvements.
