Hospitals in Zambia
The Zambia health structure starts from community level, where community health posts are staffed by community health workers who attend to the patients. The community health worker refers patients to a district hospital. Each district ideally must have a district hospital. The district hospital can then refer complicated cases to a general hospital. In Southern Province there are two General Hospitals. The University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka is the biggest hospital in Zambia. Most Zambian hospitals are government run but there are quite a number of mission hospitals in rural Zambia. There are a few private hospitals in Zambia of good standards.
