Dr. Diana Nambatya Nsubuga’s First Impressions of TIP Global Health’s Transformative Stage

By: TIP Global Health | August 27, 2022

Being a part of the TIP Global Health Team has been highly impressive. Since I joined the TIP Global Health team in July, I have enjoyed the opportunity to ask as many questions as possible. Through this, I have learned how TIP Global Health, as an authority globally and on the African continent, has worked with the Government of Rwanda to build resilient and sustainable community health systems using the E-Heza Data Solutions tool.

As a mission-driven organization, I have learnt that TIP Global Health has trained over 2,090 frontline health workers, serving approximately 450,000 people, especially women and children. This impact would never have been possible without a solid, dedicated, committed team that shows up daily for the communities they serve with shared values that have shaped the team’s behaviour focused on impact-driven programming. I have enjoyed my intentional yet detailed onboarding program involving speaking with staff members, the Rwandan Ministry of Health and key partners. The one-on-one conversations have helped show me an understanding of our organizational culture.  

TIP Global Health has built great credibility at the Ministry of Health and among national, district and community partners. Our model continues to be implemented within the government system – crucial components of the community health worker (CHW) program are run within the government program using their supply chain for essential medicines, supervisors are government staff, and CHWs are compensated using performance-based financing by the Government of Rwanda. TIP Global Health provides the digital health tool, E-Heza Data Solutions, used throughout the ecosystem. With this strong alignment with government and partners, our work is scalable through government partners because, from the start, we have aligned with Government priorities, protocols and existing structures.

There is much exciting growth in the future – we are at a transformative stage. In TIP’s 10+ years of experience, we have generated much evidence that will help propel this next development phase forward. Globally, we are considering how best to use this data to continue advocating for increased investment in community health programs worldwide, especially in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). We also share our data-driven experience with Africa Center for Disease Control (Africa CDC) and other partners as they implement their Saving Lives Initiative across African Union Member States. And we are thrilled to continue serving in a technical advisory role to Africa CDC as they identify and document community health gaps, opportunities and practical solutions in strengthening and sustaining Community Health Programs at the regional and country levels to help develop regional and country support plans based on identified gaps, opportunities, proposed solutions, and resources.

The Government of Rwanda recently invited us to partner to introduce the E-Heza digital tool to 10 new districts across the country. And we are soon partnering with Village Health Works to scale our model in our second country, Burundi.

With these many opportunities and many more, I am thrilled to join TIP Global Health as we share the critical drivers of our success in Rwanda and beyond. I look forward to strategizing with the team on our resourcing plan, strategic partnerships, financing, and our positioning globally, regionally and at the country level.
