When already strained health systems are hit with unforeseen circumstances, such as COVID-19, we demonstrate our flexibility and technical expertise to help our clients redesign and adapt programmes and systems for resilience and sustainability.
Strengthening health systems involves managing various stakeholders, building capacity, and preparing for unexpected circumstances. It also means working on longer-term projects with an array of different components. Our technical and strategic expertise has thus prepared us to navigate not only existing programmes but other aspects of public health through times of uncertainty.
