On Call Africa

On Call Africa (OCA)
Project Officer – WASH in facilities

On Call Africa was set up by a group of doctors and international development
experts, all with a shared desire to improve access to healthcare 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 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.

One consistent challenge that we have identified in all health facilities that
we work, and their surrounding catchment areas, has been poor access to Water,
Sanitation, hygiene and waste . For this reason, we reached out to
WaterAid to explore the potential to work together to improve WASH services,
alongside our existing medical interventions. Following a period of
consultation, we have been selected as the delivery partner for WaterAid’s
WASH in healthcare facilities project taking place in 27 rural health
facilities in Sesheke and Mwandi Districts. This role represents an exciting
opportunity to deliver a pioneering program that meets a clear need.
