We have had the opportunity to work in development as well as in crisis, recovery, rehabilitation, and building toward resilience. Some of the many programs we have experience in developing, implementing, and monitoring include:
Logistics & Inventory Needs Assessment Malaria Prevention & Treatment Diarrheal Disease Prevention & Treatment Hygiene Education Measles/Meningitis Mass Vaccination & Polio Mop-up Campaign Malnutrition Screening & Integration Inter-sectoral Coordination Amongst WASH, Health, Nutrition, & Others Primary Health Care Rehabilitation Community Health Worker & Midwife Training Capacity Building & Train-the-Trainer Field Pharmacy Management Data management, analysis, & visual presentation Project Reporting, Donor Engagement, Field Diplomacy Health Clinic Operations Oversight of Construction Reproductive Health & Maternal Health Integration Outbreak Response & Coordination, including inter-sectoral planning Community Engagement and Participation
We have significant experience in creating and implementing inter-sectoral collaborations, including between Nutrition and Health. For example, we have managed and facilitated the integration of health service and vaccination campaign provision with malnutrition screening, referral/transfer of patients to appropriate care, and community-based treatment programs.
We have had a lot of fun developing and implementing hygiene education programs to school children, including toothbrushing, hand washing, and environmental hygiene. Working with children as ambassadors, we are grateful to witness a positive impact on school attendance, as well as an overall difference for families and communities.
Whether the problem is unloading a boat or truck, storing equipment, managing a warehouse, tracking supplies, setting up an ordering system, or counting inventory, we have created systems adapted to specific contexts and found solutions. We have been very fortunate to learn from and train local staff in creating and maintaining these operations.
In many countries, a child dies from malaria every minute, yet this disease is completely preventable and curable. Through the training of local Community Health Workers, we have established and enhanced malaria and diarrheal disease prevention as well as appropriate treatment access, often focusing on mothers, pregnant women, and children under 5 years of age. We have responded to outbreaks locally and supported health workers to sustainably assist their own communities.
