About Vihara

Vihara is an innovation and impact network working in global health. We use contextual inquiry, behavioral insights, and human-centered design to improve the way health services are conceptualized and delivered.

Established in 2002, (as Centre for Knowledge Societies) we have worked on global health challenges across Africa, South East Asia, and Eastern Asia.

Our team has 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

 

Some of the adjacent themes we engage with are Nutrition and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH). In the past year, our work has focused on the evolving Covid - 19 crisis and its impact on our existing focus areas.
