Enjoying the Work
Formerly known as the Rhodesia Association of Medical Aid Societies (RAMAS) , the organisation was formed in 1969.
The inaugural Chairman resigned in 1982 after 13 years. He was replaced by Dr E. Leyland who held office until the 6th of November 1984, when an independent Chairman was then elected, Mr. D. P. Wadman.
On 1 April 1995 the NAMAS office moved to Medical Chambers, 60 Baines Avenue, Harare due to an increase in staff. This took place under the Chairmanship of Justice L.G. Smith who was the Chairman for 10 years.
The NAMAS office moved to King George Court as from 1 August 1998.
NAMAS played a significant role during the crafting of the “Medical Services Act” of 2000.
NAMAS changed its name to AHFoZ in 2004 following a strategic planning workshop when its mandate was extended to include any other organisations involved in health funding other than the traditional medical aid societies.
In May 2012 AHFoZ moved from King George Court to its own property; AHFoZ House at Number 18 Southey Road, Hillside Harare. The new premises were officially opened by the Chairman of Health Services Board Dr Lovemore Mbengeranwa on Friday 26th of October 2012.
