Integrated and multi-sectoral approaches that address the most critical health challenges
Healthy populations with 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 our health impact, Chemonics takes an integrated, multi-sectoral approach to strengthening health systems by working 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.
