What We Do


The Challenge

Every year, millions of people around the world die needlessly from preventable disease because they lack access to quality primary health care. Frontline health workers and health care systems are stretched beyond their capacity. Building strong, community-driven health systems – with thriving frontline health workers at their heart – is the only effective and sustainable solution.

National health systems are overstretched and fragmented
