RTI is committed to improving the health of the world's poorest people through collaborative partnerships with local communities, national governments, civil society organizations, and private-sector counterparts.
Our health experts focus on guiding effective policy formulation; improving the use of scarce financial resources in the health sector; strengthening health systems; preventing and controlling HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, and neglected tropical diseases; and supporting reproductive and maternal and child health programs.
Our programs build local capacity, emphasize community and stakeholder involvement, and support public-private partnerships. We are committed to ensuring the scale-up, replicability, and sustainability of all health programs we support and to protecting the human subjects who participate in our research studies.
We offer experience in multisectoral approaches to programs. For example, we draw on in-house expertise in education, information and communication technology, local government assistance, and conflict management and mitigation to design comprehensive responses to complex problems in the health and social sectors.
