Though many hospitals are government operated, there are a number of mission hospitals in rural Zambia. For health care professionals interested I working Zambia, they can choose from work in government hospitals, mission hospitals and private clinics. To access these job one is required to register with the Health Professions council of Zambia.

The BBC Media Action is also active in Zambia working on a number of different projects in Zambia.

The organization works in many African countries and is appropriate for individuals who may want to work around the continent.
