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

Healthy populations who have access to high-quality health services lead longer and more productive lives, resulting in stronger and more financially secure families, communities, and countries. To maximize its health impact, Chemonics takes an integrated, multi-sectoral approach to strengthening health systems. We work with national and local governments, local NGOs, and the private sector. With the ultimate goal of making sustainable improvements to the health sector, we focus on building in-country leadership capacity, strengthening organizations, and promoting policies and innovative financing solutions that enable the health sector to meet the needs of its clients.
