Saving Lives through Health Systems Innovation
“Health systems innovation” refers to new ways of organizing people, processes, and resources to deliver existing health products, practices and technologies. The goal is to achieve greater scale, effectiveness, and efficiency in health care delivery.
Since 1971, MSH has been a trusted partner in over 70 countries around the globe. Through our strong relationships with local governments, nongovernmental, civil society, and faith-based organizations - and our commitment to developing sustainable solutions- we provide our corporate and foundation partners proven channels to deliver high-impact health products and services where they are most needed.
Together with our corporate and foundation partners we are saving lives and improving health.
We have already formed partnerships with foundations such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. Corporate partners include Novartis, GE Healthcare, TOMS Shoes and Procter & Gamble.
Just a few examples of MSH success with foundation partners include:
The Sustainable Drug Seller Initiatives (SDSI) program, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, incorporates government standards, regulations, accreditation, and enforcement – along with training, supervision, business incentives, and consumer advocacy – to create profitable drug shops that increase access to quality pharmaceutical products and services in underserved communities. This successful project has already successfully expanded to Liberia, Uganda, and Tanzania. These informal sellers are often women – and this employment opportunity allows them to feed their families, educate their children, and gain independence, all while providing an essential health service in their home community.
Transparent & Efficient Programs
MSH designs results-oriented programs, and provides frequent and transparent reporting to our partners, providing evidence of our efficient and value-added approaches. See MSH’s latest financial information.
Global Expertise & Collaboration
In addition to our in-country relationships, MSH leverages our experiences to influence health on a global level. As a member of many international working groups and committees including the Global Health Council, United Nations Working Groups, InterAction, the US Global Leadership Coalition, the Reproductive Health NGO CEO Group, and the International Family Planning Coalition (IFPC), among others, MSH provides our corporate and foundation partners access to the most up-to-date theories, approaches, and data from experts around the world and across all avenues of public health. Using lessons learned in the field, including both innovative and evidence-based approaches, MSH contributes to this ever-growing body of knowledge in public health.
