  • selectively scaling up and delivering sustainable evidence-based health programmes;

  • providing technical assistance and consulting services that shape and strengthen national and international health policies, strategies and systems and build local capacity;

  • seeking to ensure that our experience, thought leadership, practical findings and research results are effectively communicated and contribute to the coordinated improvement of access to and quality of healthcare. 

Our areas of expertise include: 

  • disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment

  • disease control and elimination

  • health systems strengthening

  • research, monitoring and evaluation leading to best practice

  • behaviour change communication

  • national and international advocacy, and policy development

We explore beyond current practice, to try out innovative ways – through research, implementation and policy development – to achieve effective and sustainable disease management and control. We have pioneered best practices and approaches, setting the standards that others now follow.
