The Lusaka Apex Medical University will contribute to the global supply of highly qualified health professionals with emphasis on Zambia and Southern Africa.

The Lusaka Apex Medical University is a Centre of Excellence in Medical, Nursing and Health Sciences Education, Research and Specialised Clinical Care.


a) To provide an alternate route for health and medical education for those young men and women who want to become doctors/ medical specialists and other health professionals but have not been given the opportunity to do so due to limited places in the national University of Zambia Medical School and other health institutions  in Zambia and the region.

b) To provide quality research work in the medical field to support the country’s fight against the double burden of diseases:


  1. Communicable diseases, such as malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, and
  2. Non-communicable diseases, such as hypertension and diabetes, which are becoming prevalent on the African Continent.

  1. c) To work with the private sector and other public institutions to strategise and rationalise the health sector in Zambia, such that the country extracts as much benefit from both the human resource and  non-human resources available in the country.
