About On Call Africa

On Call Africa was set up by a group of doctors and international development
experts, all with a shared desire to improve access to and health
outcomes within rural communities. In particular, looking to support
communities with traditionally poor access to medical professionals and
amenities – Zambia was selected due its low ratio of doctors to people.
Following a consultation with the Ministry of Health, the Southern Province
was selected as the starting point.

We work in partnership with the Ministry of Health, Rural Health Facilities,
volunteer Doctors from the UK, and delivery partners to support the
development of strong and effective rural health systems in Southern Province,
Zambia. We also work with Rural Health Facilities that have been identified by
the Ministry of Health as being in need of capacity building and support. With
these Rural Health Facilities we map their catchment area, carry out in depth
assessments of health facility needs, and the needs of their communities, and
use these to work with the health facility staff to develop detailed quality
improvement and implementation plans to improve access to and quality of
healthcare. Once in place we work with the Ministry of Health, and our
partners to deliver identified programmes of work.

We are currently experiencing rapid growth as an organisation, and working in
partnership with large reputable partners to develop programmes, and submit
funding proposals to deliver this work. This diverse role will work across all
funding streams, and support the organisation to effectively manage and funds
and report on their use.
