We empower communities to access quality health care

Building shock resilient and responsive health systems

We will expand our expertise and skills to meet the growing challenges posed to health and nutrition by climate change, conflict, pandemics such as Ebola, and natural disasters. Using our experience of working closely with governments, we will help strengthen capacity to build shock resilient and responsive systems that are equipped to respond to epidemic outbreaks. We will develop our knowledge in health infrastructure, to build back better following a natural disaster (such as an earthquake), and ensure health facilities use green energy sources.

The impact we will achieve:

  • Timely response to and containment of epidemic outbreaks
  • Health systems better able to cope with natural disasters
  • Health infrastructure is resilient to natural disasters
  • Health facilities are making greater use of green energy sources
  • The impact we will achieve
  • Reduction in harmful practices, such as FGM and early marriage
  • Stigma reduction around girls’ sexuality
  • Women and girls have access to contraception and safe abortion
  • Girls empowered to make healthy life choices
