Government of Japan Provides 670 thousand Zambian Kwacha to Zambia Tuberculosis and Leprosy Trust (ZATULET)



On 26th February 2015, Mr. Kiyoshi Koinuma, Ambassador of Japan to the Republic of Zambia presented on behalf of the Government of Japan, a Grant amounting to 103,008 United States Dollars, or approximately 670 thousand Kwacha to Zambia Tuberculosis and Leprosy Trust (ZATULET) to facilitate the implementation of the project for Construction of New Community Clinic in Lusaka City.

ZATULET is an organization which promotes case-finding, diagnosis, treatment, prevention and control of tuberculosis, leprosy and HIV/AIDS in communities and it operates a community clinic in Massmedia, Lusaka City. However, the number of patients in this clinic continues to escalate because of high HIV/AIDS infection rate in urban areas and co-infection rate of TB and HIV/AIDS, thus posing a huge challenge in providing adequate assistance to all the patients.

Once this project is completed, it is expected that the capacity of the clinic will be doubled, and a newly-established laboratory and lab equipment will be readily available to enable the early detection of diseases.
It is hoped that the project will contribute to the realization of Universal Health Coverage, under which every person can receive basic medical services, and accentuate the long-lasting friendship between the people of Japan and Zambia.
