Since 2007 HIPZ has been dedicated to improving Zanzibar’s health system.

We believe that every Zanzibari should have access to safe health care when they need it. 

We manage two hospitals, train local staff and run a progressive mental health programme.

We are working with the Government towards the goal of achieving Universal Health Coverage in Zanzibar, and we work with and in the communities that we serve.

Our work reaches over 350,000 people.

Our Work

From the grassroots to the Government, HIPZ is embedded in every level of the health care system in Zanzibar and we are a catalyst for positive change. We run our flagship programme in two hospitals, and strengthen systems at hospital and government level.
