Improving health and nutrition outcomes and systems.
Good health and good nutrition are essential for people to develop to their full potential. Both are major barriers to human development in Africa. Working with our health practice, we are committed to improving the financing of healthcare, and to supporting good nutrition and WaSH.
We help governments, their partners, and private and non-state actors to provide better nutrition, WaSH and healthcare services, with a particular focus on young and marginalised populations.
