Following the outbreak of the Corona virus in Zambia, ZACOPH created a  Gofundme page with the aim of raising money to purchase masks, gloves, sanitizers and cleaning supplies in order to help ensure that as many health care workers are protected against SARS-CoV-2 as they work tirelessly to manage the spread of the virus. 

On the 2nd November 2020, ZACOPH President, Dr. Edna Chikoye presented Minister of Health, Dr. Chitalu Chilufya, with the PPE donation worth K66,800.
