Health systems strengthening has been at the heart of RTI’s mission for 60 years. A dynamic blend of innovation, research, and project implementation enables us to foster supportive policies and systems that improve access to, and demand for, quality health services.
We apply our health systems strengthening expertise across our work in infectious diseases, noncommunicable diseases, and reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health, working hand in hand with governments in low- and middle-income countries to ensure they have the policies, systems and health workforce in place to deliver accessible, cost-effective and equitable health services to their citizens.
We implement programs in partnership with a variety of stakeholders across the public and private sectors to enhance health service delivery and build country ownership by strengthening health governance and financing, improving the strategic use of data, building capacity across the entire health system to provide access to quality services, and increasing demand for these services at the community level. Gender equity and social inclusion are at the heart of our programming, and we continuously improve upon and adapt our interventions by applying context-specific research and learnings so that people can get the care they need.
