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.
