Key approaches

  • Prioritizing geographies with poor health outcomes: IGPH prioritizes counties and provinces/ districts within the counties where health outcomes are poorest. Our focus countries are India, Pakistan in Asia and Nigeria, and Kenya in Africa

    Focusing on populations who tend to be 'left behind': IGPH’s global health work prioritizes subpopulations that are marginalized due to various structural factors like poverty, gender, age, sexuality, criminalization, etc. Some of those subpopulations are rural poor women and their children, adolescent girls and young women, sex workers, men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, to name a few

    Using an equity lens to identify, address and monitor structural barriers: Our programs recognize the need to address structural barriers and inequalities to achieve desirable health outcomes and design and implement programs using that lens

    Person-centric with a life course and continuum of care approach: The IGPH programs place the affected persons at the center of designing and implementing programs emphasizing a life course and continuum of care approach.

  • Evidence-informed: Our program designs are guided by local evidence most of the time collected by people affected by the health problem. Evidence generation and use is a continuous process embedded in the implementation cycle of our programs

    Multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral teams: We engage multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral teams who bring in unique and varied skills, training, and experiences to design and implement comprehensive programs

    Focus on achieving scale and sustainability: Our programs focus on achieving health outcomes at scale in partnership with local civil society organizations, academic institutions and government to sustain the change.
