What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Prevention & Care

Prevention and Care
The Organization provides resources to local implementing partner organizations to deliver healthcare prevention and care services. The projects are tailored to the context and demonstrated needs of the patient population served by the field partner. Current projects are focused on the following areas:
• HN prevention, voluntary counseling and HN testing (VC1) and antiretroviral treatment and care delivery;
• Treatment of pregnant women with HN;
• Post-rape healthcare;
• Newborn care;
• Malnutrition.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
People with HIV/AIDS
Pregnant people
Women and girls
Low-income people

Africa as a region bears more than 24% of the global burden of disease but has access to only 3% of
the world's health workers and less than 1 % of the world's financial resources. The Organization
addresses this critical shortage of healthcare workers by investing in a sustainable training model for
frontline workers. The Organization works alongside field partners to identify critical needs and the
innovative methods to address them, including training, modifying workflow or by facilitating access
to essential tools and medications. Current projects are focused on the training of the following:
• Healthcare professionals - Doctors, Nurses, and clinical support staff;
• Community healthcare workers;
• Community leaders;
• Data manager;
• The Organization works alongside field partners to identify and address critical needs in
healthcare worker training. Included in this approach is the design and implementation of
innovative educational tools.

Population(s) Served
Infants and toddlers
People with HIV/AIDS
Pregnant people
Low-income people
Women and girls

Inequity and injustice motivate the Organization to advocate for change by amplifying the voices and
needs of those served by the Organization. Current projects are focused on the following:
• Ethics In Health blog by Arthur Ammann, MD;
• Outreach to large international organizations to share care models for post-rape healthcare;
• Advocating for the inclusion of the care of preterm infants in global health efforts to reduce
child mortality.

Population(s) Served

People with HIV/AIDS
Pregnant people

The Organization develops and implements innovative technological solutions that help its partners
overcome the challenges of their limited resource settings. The Organization focuses on using simple
and scalable technologies that allow healthcare providers to track their outcomes in real-time using
cloud-based data collection software and analysis tools. The Organization helps their partners
establish baseline data in neonatal mortality rates and stillbirth rates. Additionally, they use
technology to track inventory of critical supplies and predict stock needs over time. The
Organization also works to bridge the gap between care delivery and data collection by developing
software programs that facilitate care delivery while simultaneously collecting data that guides
resource allocation. The Organization has also developed its own neonatal decision support
software, NoviGuide, that has been tested in multiple sites in Africa.

Population(s) Served
