Peter Magombeyi

HRD, Doctor
Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association (ZHDA)

Peter Magombeyi is a doctor and the Acting President of The Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association (ZHDA), an organisation defending labour rights and advocating access to healthcare for all, as well as improvement of health facilities. The union negotiates conditions of service for government hospital doctors and patients. The association also represents hundreds of newly qualified doctors who are doing their residencies.

Despite numerous challenges, Zimbabwe has an active civil society advocating for a broad range of human rights issues, yet increasing numbers of human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists are being targeted due to their legitimate human rights work.
