We envision better health systems that foster quality & access; reduce threats; and promote healthier behaviors to improve lives in communities. The health of our communities and our planet has never been more important. The recent growth of melting glaciers, rising seas, migration, conflict, and global epidemics and pandemics have put the health of our globe into sharp focus. Communities need better health security, better access to healthcare, a deeper understanding of how our natural world and physical health interact, and greater engagement with the market forces that shape our global economy.
1. We Think and Work Politically:
Getting government buy-in and support for development projects requires an understanding of the politics, incentives, and agendas of policymakers. We conduct political economy analyses to help us design solutions that reach across the aisle.
2. We Integrate Digital Solutions::
Technology helps us to work smarter, not harder, to achieve the best results. Across all our projects, we look for opportunities to incorporate digital technology for program management, data analysis, and health services.
3. We Bring a Multi-Sector Perspective:
The health problems we tackle are complex— entwined with climate, governance, business, and financial issues that mean solutions need to work for systems, not silos. Our multidisciplinary expertise means when we design health programs we sit with bankers, scientists, statisticians, and politicians to develop smart strategies and projects that work for the long haul.
4. We Act as a Broker:
Our global network and experience mean we understand that different actors bring different strengths and solutions—and that systemic changes in health need inputs from local and international partners. We act as a convener, bringing together the best ideas across disciplines, civil society, government, and the private sector to broker innovative and impactful solutions.
