" The lessons and experience that I will gain from this fellowship will help me enhance my understanding of how best I can achieve my goals. I look forward to expanding my network and learning with my peers and from people who have the experience of successfully implementing policies that are beneficial to human beings as a whole. The skills I gain from this program will be crucial in my development as a doctor, and will be a much needed stepping stone to greater opportunities to share and learn from others. This program will provide me with tools I need to begin on the path that will help me see my dream of quality healthcare services, insurance, structures and policies, become a reality and one which benefits the Zambian people. I look forward to being a part of the fellowship community and growing and learning from this program. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Zambian Health Initiative For All (ZHIFA)
This project aims to improve the current health insurance market available in Zambia. By consulting the affected population (the patients) and liaising with health policy makers, it is my hope and dream to formulate comprehensive and affordable health care insurance. At the same time, contributing to health care policies that benefit people of all socieconomic statuses and not only those that are able to afford it. I also wish to introduce an emergency fund policy in all major hospitals, to cover the few patients that are unable to afford healthcare or have not signed up for it yet, or even still that have come in an emergency situation so that the life is saved first, while the cost of saving that life is covered by said emergency funds.
About the Millennium Fellow
Fube Kelvin Bwalya is an intelligent, hard working, dedicated and determined student of medicine in his final year of medicine. He is currently studying at the institute of Lusaka Apex Medical University, in Zambia. He was born on April, 1992, in Lusaka, Zambia at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH). Currently, he resides in Kitwe, which is in the Copperbelt Province of Zambia.
For the past 5 years, it has been a dream of Fube’s to provide sustainable, fair and quality healthcare services and healthcare insurance that can be accessible to all people in Zambia, regardless of their financial or social status. As he progressed through his medical education, it became apparent that there are holes in the system that do currently affect the people of Zambia, mostly those considered to be of low socioeconomic status. This fueled his passion for medicine even more, and has been a great source of motivation towards becoming a doctor.
Fube aspires to be in a professional field in which the policies, guidelines and structures of the medical field benefit the Zambians, at all levels of its society, with quality healthcare insurance, services and customer service. He looks forward to being able to contribute to the development of United Nation’s Sustainable goals and in doing so elevating Zambia’s healthcare system to greater heights.
