Health Systems Strengthening
All people have the right to access good health care. However, many of the people in the rural communities where we work have to travel long distances to receive basic healthcare. Once they arrive at the facility – whether a small rural outpost or clinic, or a hospital – the facility may not be able to best manage what brought the patient there in the first place. The health workers may not be adequately trained and even if they are in a health facility that can help them, the quality of service may be limited. By working to improve the capacity, sustainability and outcomes of health systems in Ethiopia, Malawi and Tanzania, we improve all levels of healthcare.
