Zambia Centre for Communication Programmes (ZCCP) is a not-for-profit, locally based multi-media communications organization, which uses the power of the mass media (radio, TV, print and electronic media) and social mobilization to reach the Zambian population and to affect social and behaviour change. The organization uses a rigorous formative research process to generate appropriate edutainment content relevant to health and development priorities in Zambia.
Established in 2002, the core activities of ZCCP since then have taken place under the auspices of a Regional Health Communication Programmes involving 9 country partners in southern Africa, which is co-coordinated by the Soul City Institute. To ensure that the developed materials and interventions are contextualized to local situations, ZCCP has developed Kwatu as a well-known health and development communication brand, which has been used to carry out all of ZCCP’s products. Overtime ZCCP has integrated other socio-health issues such as HIV/AIDS and Gender-based violence and campaign to end child marriages in Zambia.
ZCCP is implementing the Zambia Community HIV Prevention Project (ZCHPP) in Kabwe and Kapiri Mposhi districts in Central Province, Chipata district in Eastern Province and Mufulira district in Copperbelt. The ZCHPP project is funded by PEPFAR and USAID through PACT.
