Communicable & non-communicable diseases
Our health consultants take a holistic view of communicable and noncommunicable diseases. While focusing on specific diseases, such as HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria, we aim to connect with the wider health system and the social, economic, and development environment. Our skilled teams work on a mix of long-term and short-term projects.
We improve the design and implementation of disease programs by focusing on coordination, integration, multisectoral work, and strong accountability. We’re also experts in monitoring and evaluation of disease response programs. Increasingly, we’re extending our portfolio to noncommunicable diseases and neglected tropical diseases.
Working with different sectors for evidence-based results, we do all this:
- Work in highly complex environments and facilitate policy dialogue and participatory working by engaging a range of stakeholders, including governments, civil society, the private sector, and donors.
- Focus on results but always take account of context, local processes, and opportunities to build on “what works.”
- Are familiar with international processes and national/global partnerships, such as Stop TB, Roll Back Malaria, and UNAIDS.
- Focus on beneficiary and client needs
- Use a rights-based approach that considers equity, gender, and social determinants of health to extend disease responses to those in need.
- Work with supply and demand-side issues: strengthening systems, developing sustainable capacity, and promoting empowerment and self-reliance.
