To improve their health, people need access to new knowledge and understanding. They need health services to be delivered in ways that are convenient and easy to understand. Those who provide services need better tools and ways of working.
WE UNRAVEL COMPLEX PROBLEMS
Challenges of Global Health are never simple, and always involve a realignment of existing ways of living and working with new directions emerging from medical science. All this within low resource environments where poverty, gender asymmetries, intergenerational traumas, and other complex problems may hinder effective service delivery or uptake.
On one hand, we use participatory approaches to better understand the requirements and context of beneficiary communities, and on the other, we also follow a partner centered approach to continuously align goals. This helps us create a fertile ground on which innovations don’t just sprout as momentary incidents but flourish and scale over time.
WE BUILD AND TEST SOLUTIONS
New meaningful solutions to the challenges of Global Health cannot arise in the abstract, but rather in concerted dialogue with different kinds of local knowledge and global expertise. Once the key challenges have been well understood, effective programmatic responses to them must be developed in dialogue with channel partners and other technical agencies.
We call this approach Partner-Embedded Prototyping and Validation, and we have enjoyed substantial success in implementing this approach in several verticals of Global Health.
WE FACILITATE INNOVATION
We run strategy sessions, innovation training workshops, and acceleration programs to introduce partners and ecosystem players to the tools and techniques of innovation.
We help partners define their goals better, envision possible solutions, and identify key stakeholders. We support them in their innovation journey.
CROSS REGIONAL COLLABORATION
Over the past decade, we have collaboratively constructed theories of change with implementation partners in the regions of India, South East Asia & East Africa.
We seek to expand our implementation and channel partners in these regions, and develop new partnership platforms for more effective cross-regional learning and collaboration.
