Welcome to the new Zambart website and thank you for taking the time to visit. The new website provides an opportunity for you to become familiar with the multi-disciplinary research that is conducted by Zambart staff.
Zambart is a research organization that grew out of a collaboration between the University of Zambia’s School of Medicine and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine established in 1988. The initial focus of the research undertaken by Zambart was on the impact of HIV on the clinical presentation and outcome of treatment of TB. However, Zambart now conducts multidisciplinary research in the areas of epidemiology, clinical research, social science, laboratory, operations research, health policy analysis, health economics, development communications, counselling, and community based research in TB, HIV and other areas of public health importance. The greatest asset that the organization has is the complement of over 600 dedicated and committed staff that includes scientists and researchers, administrative staff, and community based staff.
Because we are committed to conducting high quality research that provides a solid evidence base for health decision making, our research activities are usually conducted in collaboration with national governments, local and international universities, research institutes and organizations and local communities, multinational organizations such as the World Health Organization.
In addition to ensuring that all research conducted is linked to policy and practice and thus leading to improvements in the health status of all Zambians as well as globally, Zambart is also dedicated to strengthening the research capacity in the country by providing training opportunities for its staff members.
I would like to thank you for interest in Zambart and invite you to get in touch with us if you would like to learn more of the work we are doing, are looking for an opportunity to further your skills in research, or would like to collaborate with us.
