Health and human rights are severely challenged in the Zambian prisons. Ubumi has with its partner organisations worked to improve health for several years. Ubumi has based on its experience developed the so-called Ubumi Model, which is an innovative approach to prisons work. The Ubumi Model entails working holistically, practically and strategically with health and rights. The work includes inmate volunteer teams, who care for patients, work in the vegetable gardens and other activities. In specific terms, the project will work to 1) build capacity of 4 partner organisations to implement the so-called Ubumi Model through a workshop 2) specifically narrow in on building organisational capacity of NZP+ in Chipata through intensive monitoring and capacity building exercises following the workshop. The aim is that the organisation can implement the Ubumi Model with much less support from Ubumi than the case is today, and ultimately make them independent from Ubumi support. A key aim is to strengthen their role as advocates, mamagers as well as their monitoring and data collection skills. 3) Implementation of the Ubumi Model in Chipata Correctional Facility female and male prison over a period of 12 months
