We work with governments, donors, and civil society to provide context-specific, evidence-based support in health economics and public health. Our vision is to ensure all people have access to good-quality healthcare.
We work across the entire policy cycle, from diagnostic to reform implementation through to evaluation and monitoring.
Our experts have a wealth of academic depth and practical country expertise. The team is made up of in-house experts but also supported by internationally renowned associates, working across four broad themes of the health system:
- Health financing: We support the global ambition for achieving universal health coverage (UHC) in low- and middle- income countries through problem-driven iterative adaptation (PDIA) led analysis and specific technical support on definition of benefit packages for UHC, identification of domestic resource mobilisation strategies, support in introduction of social health insurance, technical efficiency analysis, strategic purchasing reforms, and results-based financing (RBF) implementation.
- Health governance and service delivery: We support governments in transforming health systems and implementing reforms that translate into more equitable and high-quality health service delivery as well as more effective governance arrangements. We provide technical assistance to government on issues such as hospital reforms, assessment of public/private partnerships (PPPs), hospital masterplanning, and more.
- Human resources for health: To ensure governments have the right person for the right job, we provide diagnostic analysis (such as discrete choice experiments), reform implementation, and evaluation of reform packages.
- Health information, monitoring and evaluations, and research: We use a variety of tools to support the diagnosis and evaluation stages: from quantitative surveys to qualitative research, impact evaluations, value for money analysis, data envelopment analysis, stochastic frontier analysis, public expenditure reviews, and public expenditure tracking surveys, amongst others.
