The Zambia Integrated Systems Strengthening Program (ZISSP) was a four-and-a-half year USAID-funded, Abt Associates-led project which increased the use of quality, high-impact health services through a health systems strengthening approach in Zambia.

These services addressed malaria, family planning, HIV and AIDS, and maternal, newborn, and child health and nutrition.
