We help unlock value and maximise impact in health delivery across Africa by addressing technical health systems challenges in programme implementation. We do this by providing technical assistance, capacity development and harness knowledge management & learning.
Through our service offerings, we aim to achieve the following objectives:
- Equip institutions with the insights, tools and methodologies needed to boost their capacity to effectively deliver sustainable health programmes
- Identify and address root causes and underlying system behaviours that negatively impact programme implementation
- Build the competencies of programme and policy stakeholders to implement and adapt best practices and strategies to optimise programme performance; to establish and coordinate collective learning networks; to harness social capital, disseminate good practices; and influence the conversion of learnings into action – from diagnostics, through design and delivery
- Develop communities of practice from various geographies and thematic areas to document cases of good practice.
