St John Zambia is one of the leading providers of first aid training within Zambia. They have years of experience in first aid and offer a range of courses for businesses and the general public in order to ensure that the people of Zambia are better equipped to save lives in an emergency. Dedicated volunteers also provide various care within local communities in Lusaka such as HIV and AIDS programmes, growth monitoring and health education and awareness.


First Aid and First Aid Training

St John volunteers undertake first aid duties for the public at a range of events. The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) is one of St John Zambia’s biggest customers and there is no shortage of volunteers at international and regional matches. An ambulance to provide emergency transport, when required, was obtained in 2007.

St John in Zambia offers a range of first aid training to business, commerce and at public events.

Care in the Community

Strong links have been formed over the years between St John Zambia and the Ministry of Health’s Lusaka District Health Management Team. Activities undertaken by St John volunteers are integrated into governmental community health programmes to the overall benefit of the population.

A range of services are provided to mothers with young children including health education, growth monitoring and community sensitisation and awareness at times of epidemics.

Mother and Baby Programme

St John Zambia is supporting the local government’s efforts to improve the availability of timely and essential care for pregnant women and new mothers with babies.

Volunteers make door-to-door visits to support expectant and new parents, encourage them to use medical services early and often enough. St John also supplies a basic package of support to local clinics. In remote villages, where health services are not available, our volunteers work together with local health staff to provide outreach clinics.

In the first two years after its launch, our Mother and Baby programme reached a total of 6,000 people in Zambia with low-cost and high quality activities.
