ZAN implements a community powered response strategy which is centred on transforming the membership for meaningful contribution to healthy communities at both community and policy level. We aimed at capacitating and institutionalising our members for them to become more responsive to health in a broader perspective.
ZAN is peerless in the arena of coordination. We have evolved new approaches to coordination, drawing lessons from our rich history of organizing CSOs during the early days of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Our success in coordination is based on the fusion of geographic decentralization and segmentation of membership into thematic sectors.
At ZAN we recognize the need to continually invest in capacity building for the network staff and membership to efficiently deliver on our mandates of servicing local communities. To this end, our capacity strengthening approach places emphasis on enhancing programming and leadership capacities, delivered through emerging innovations and strategic partnerships.
