Health

We have over 25 years' experience working with governments to improve health systems worldwide.

Funded by UK aid, FFP is a food fortification programme which aims to improve the nutritional status for people in Pakistan, particularly women of child bearing age and children.

Good health is essential to sustainable development. Despite major improvements in recent years, health outcomes in developing countries continue to be undermined by a treble burden of historical infectious diseases, new emerging infectious diseases and an epidemic of non-communicable diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease. Compounded with fragmented health systems and lack of resources, this presents a huge challenge.

We start with the health-seeking behaviour of poor and vulnerable people and develop solutions from that premise. We work with our clients and partners to build sustainable and effective health systems in developing countries – with a particular focus on introducing sustainable financing mechanisms, such as national or social health insurance, to strive towards universal health coverage. We also support improvements in health care delivery – spanning both the public and private sector.

Our in-house experts provide technical assistance and programme management in:

  • Health systems strengthening – including economics, policy, planning and financing
  • Maternal, neonatal and child health
  • Public health – including HIV, other communicable diseases and non-communicable diseases
  • Global health security
  • Nutrition
