Building resilient and flexible health systems ensures that everyone, especially poor and underserved populations, has access to essential health services without experiencing financial hardship. These same health systems protect entire communities in the face of emerging health crises and conflict. We address the root causes and underlying system behaviors that negatively impact health outcomes by supporting country-led efforts to improve health system resilience and promote transition from donor dependence. We work across the functional ‘building blocks’ of the health system, teaching local stakeholders to see health within the broader operating environment and to design and implement evidence-based solutions to systematically improve health system performance. As a multidisciplinary organization, Chemonics increases domestic resources for development, improves accountability, secures political will, and strengthens public sector systems to support countries in their journey toward self-reliant health systems.
