  • The health system in zambia has for long mainly targeted Dr's and nurses as the primary  source of human resource in the provision of healthcare,but in doing so,the health system is only managing and combating conditions and diseases after they have already occurred and mostly at a latter stage.
  • Non communicable diseases are on the rise in zambia and research has projected that if not well managed in the next two decades,the number of people with NCD's will double. The incorporation of a team which is trained to manage and reduce noncommunicable diseases such as stroke,diabetes,trauma,cerebral palsy in peds etc is a vital step in reducing NCD's, physiotherapy personnel's have a core vital role in helping with management and tratment of such conditions and diseases on the affected personnel pre and post occurrence, this in turn will help the government to reduce on the heavy expenditure of medications to people affected with NCD's, decreased hospital admissions and most importantly,reduce death rate and increase life expectancy,.
