Health systems across the world vary to reflect government priorities and targets, and the local context and need, but all must be built on strong foundations with clear goals, rigorous policy design, responsive engagement, thorough appraisal, and well-defined roles and accountabilities.
We work with our UK and international clients and partners to build effective health systems, supported by robust policy development and sustainable economic and financing mechanisms, including national or social health insurance approaches.
As the world’s biggest provider of public private partnership (PPP) services, we have developed innovative PPP policies for national health-agencies in multiple European and Asian nations, creating bespoke models to suit local conditions.
Our key areas of focus
We help governments review health expenditure through the managements of health resource accounts, examining effectiveness and efficiency of providers, and developing alternative models of financing the health sector, including national and social insurance schemes.
We support governments and regions design health systems which will best deliver in line with policy direction and strategic priorities. This includes organisational structuring, institutional strengthening, defining roles and accountabilities, governance, performance management and due diligence.
Policies for delivery
We support clients across the world to design preventative, public health and healthcare policy and direction to meet their growing healthcare challenges. Through international government agencies, we have helped developing countries design both communicable disease and non-communicable disease programmes including for HIV. We can provide policy review support to governments and regions across the world and assess how current policy fits with the healthcare needs of its people and assist in updating this.
We have significant experience of helping governments set up PPP financing models and are the world’s largest provider of PPP services having completed over 300 projects. In doing so, we can draw on our experience of delivering PPP projects in a wide range of places including the UK, South Africa, Canada, Australia and China.
