Vihara is an innovation and implementation organization committed to Global Health. Vihara uses contextual understanding and behavioral insights to conceptualize new interventions and solutions but it doesn't stop there. It then works closely with changemaking organizations on the ground to prototype and validate new ways of engaging and serving people.
Our Leadership team has developed experience and expertise in the following areas of work:
The Future of Frontline Care (MNCH)
New Approaches to Family Planning (FP-SRH)
Digital Strategies for Adolescent Health
Gender as a Factor in Family Health
Smarter Approaches to Reducing Tuberculosis (TB)
Socio-Cultural Factors in Mental Health and Wellbeing
Vihara's areas of focus closely map Global Health priorities.
Vihara advances the goals of Global Health by better understanding people and their values, their behavior as well as their unmet needs.
Our approach is fundamentally collaborative, co-creative, and facilitatory. We can only make it real when we work together.
