Jamii ni Afya
Zanzibar’s digitally enabled community health system delivers high-quality healthcare for all.
Everyone deserves access to high-quality healthcare no matter who they are or where they live, but more than half of the world’s population—over 4 billion people—lack essential health coverage.
In Zanzibar, too many people experience poor health and children die prematurely because of persistent barriers keeping them from getting the care they need, but digital technologies have an unprecedented potential to remove these barriers and improve access to and the quality of health services
Jamii ni Afya is transforming how people access care by connecting every household to community health volunteers in the world’s first government-led, digital community health program at full national scale.
By equipping community health workers with digital tools and positioning them inside a digitally enabled health system, we can help everyone get the healthcare they need, when they need it.

Community health volunteers are supporting families all across Zanzibar. Here are three stories of clients and families who have benefitted from the support of dedicated community health volunteers in Jamii ni Afya.
