Core Mission: To serve as a global centre for primary health care policy and programming

Social Impact in Ethiopia: Our services include the provision of evidence based advice to the Ethiopian government on critical primary health care and community health system issues within the country. Our work also involves the establishment and running of district innovation labs that explore possibilities of implementing state of the art health interventions within a community. Furthermore, we also train leaders of primary health care setups in Ethiopia so as to ensure district level health services is managed with well oriented  and capacitated leaders. The aforementioned areas of intervention together are aimed at transforming the quality and relevance of health services given to Ethiopians at a district level.

Considerable size of our engagement, however, is to support African countries build strong primary health care systems through provision training, first hand filed experience and technical assistance.
