The Resident Doctors Association of Zambia (RDAZ) is a non profit making professional body for medical doctors in Zambia. RDAZ has been in existence prior to independence in 1964, but was officially registered with the registrar of societies in 1994.
The mandate of RDAZ is to uphold the welfare and professional integrity of the medical doctors. It represents the interests and professional dispensation of all non specialist resident doctors.
The association is governed by the National executive committee (NEC), which is supported by various Hospital based branches. The branches are responsible for handling the local affairs of the resident doctors at facility, district or provincial level. The branches report to the National Executive Committee which handles matters at national level.
RDAZ is a key stakeholder of the government of the republic of Zambia through the ministry of health and other health oriented non governmental organisations (NGOs). We believe a healthy nation is key to development of any nation as such, ensuring that the providers of health services are well taken care of is the key mandate of the association.
A WELL REMUNERATED DOCTOR is a happy, focused and motivated health care provider.
