" The thought of learning new skills and acquiring new knowledge from others who know better drives my work. These skills and knowledge acquired are passed down to others and used to help others that are in need. I believe that the knowledge I'll acquire in the Millennium Fellowship program will help me execute my lifelong dream of helping the rural communities access medical facilities easily and largely contribute to the UN SDGs in that way. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Quality Health for All
The project focuses on exploring the healthcare services offered in a rural area (Isoka, Muchinga Province Zambia) and how accessible these services are by the people of the area and improve the accessibility and quality of these services for the people of this community.
About the Millennium Fellow
Ephraim Mwanza is a self-motivated multi-talented young man, born in the small town of Isoka, Muchinga province of Zambia. He completed his primary and high school in the same town he was born in and he is currently in his final year (7th year) pursuing his career in Bachelors Degree of medicine and surgery at the Lusaka Apex Medical University. Ever since he was in primary school, he always wanted to help people in health-related sectors, especially those in rural areas who have limited access to these services. He experienced this first hand as his biological mother passed away 2 months after he was born due to some puerperal complications, he believes if they had easy access to medical health facilities in rural areas like Isoka many women would not succumb to such events. The experience he had as mentioned above has been his motivation. He, therefore, strives to work towards helping the rural areas to have easy access to health services, and this he believes will be achieved through his dream of becoming a medical doctor soon, contributing to the UN SDGs.
