Health

Integrated and multi-sectoral approaches that address the most critical health challenges

At Chemonics, development is more than a passion or calling. It’s a profession. So our global network of health specialists pursue a higher standard every day. We push our Peruvian health worker training program to go beyond today’s targets, creating systems that will produce qualified, motivated health workers long after our project ends. We reimagine TB care in Ukraine, so people living with both HIV and TB can receive integrated care in a single setting, rather than traveling to separate hospitals. We embrace project management as a discipline, not an afterthought. And we deliver results. Because with decades of experience operating in complex social and political environments, we know how to quickly mobilize resources, seamlessly adapt to change and strategically apply lessons learned across all our projects.

We work across the building blocks of a health system, as well as key areas in public health, such as maternal and child health, HIV/AIDS, sexual and reproductive health, malaria, and tuberculosis. We offer a range of services, from building the capability of local actors to design, lead, and manage essential health services to equipping communities with the knowledge and skills to effect positive change in local health systems and their own health outcomes. These efforts help countries attain robust, sustainable delivery of high-quality services in the sectors listed below.

HIV and AIDS. Chemonics leverages its diverse skills and wide-ranging experience to achieve the vision of an AIDS-free generation. We work with health providers, the health system, and community groups to better reach marginalized populations. These efforts prevent HIV transmission and increase the number of people who know their HIV status and seek treatment. Key to achieving these outcomes is improving the systems that ensure HIV prevention and treatment, including health provider preparation and support; health systems improvements, including supply chain functionality; and supportive policies.

Health systems strengthening. Chemonics uses a combination of strategies to strengthen health systems. We help countries develop the accessible, available, acceptable, and high-quality health workforce needed to improve health outcomes. We strengthen finance and logistics systems to increase access and engage in policy work to improve the quality of care. We also develop management information systems, apply franchising models, and build public-private partnerships. Together, these approaches help local health systems improve their planning, monitoring, and decision-making.

Maternal and child health, reproductive health, and family planning. Chemonics partners with governments, NGOs, and the private sector to increase access to high-quality services and commodities for maternal and child health, reproductive health, and family planning.

Malaria, tuberculosis, and other infectious diseases. Chemonics uses community-driven approaches to empower local stakeholders in the fight against infectious diseases, such as tuberculosis and malaria, which place a heavy burden on developing countries.

Integrating health across sectors of development. We recognize the impact that social and economic determinants have on health. We use expertise garnered from decades of experience in other sectors of development, such as democracy and governance, economic growth, education, and environment to design, support, and inform approaches to address the world’s most pressing health concerns.

Supply chain solutions. Recognizing the critical role that access to medicines, health products, and other essential commodities plays in ending extreme poverty, our multi-sector supply chain solutions work optimizes supply chain performance in low- and middle-income countries. Our dynamic portfolio of long-term projects adapts private sector practices to build resilient supply chains that have world-class efficiency, ease of use, and last-mile reach.
