Musuka, Godfrey  (2006) Preliminary exploration of views from health civil groups on current health legislation of Zimbabwe. CCS Grant Report : 1-16.

This paper outlines the key health laws of Zimbabwe. In addition it also describes the views of health civil society on the current health laws of Zimbabwe as well as on the performance of health service delivery of the Ministry of Health and Child Welfare of the government of Zimbabwe. Twenty key informants from health civil society organisations were interviewed.

Key individuals in health civil society organisations stated that they were familiar with the current health legislation of Zimbabwe. They have actively engaged the Zimbabwean Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Health and Child Welfare on debates pertaining to bills, white papers and proposed national budget of the Ministry of Health and Child Welfare. In addition key individuals in health civil society in Zimbabwe believe the government of Zimbabwe has failed to implement and deliver acceptable levels of health services.

The study recommended that

1. There is need for the enactment of laws that ensure that health rights are viewed as a human rights issue in Zimbabwe

2. There is need for the government of Zimbabwe to closely look at health service delivery as civil society groups generally view it as poor

3. There is need for both civil society organisations and the government to deal with the high level of suspicion between these two groups as this negatively affects the implementation of programmes
