Informed by our work across five countries, we contribute to the movement for universal health coverage through research, open-source resources, technical assistance, partnerships, and advocacy.


We support community and frontline health workers to deliver access to quality, effective, and trusted primary health services to patients in order to improve health equity and outcomes. Alongside our partners like the Community Health Impact Coalition, we advocate for well-supported community health workers who are selected, trained, equipped, supervised, and paid. 

We conduct rigorous, high-quality research to measure impact, guide quality improvement, and inform global policy. 



In partnership with governments, we train and grow the community health workforce to deliver high-quality primary healthcare.

We open-source many of the education and training tools we create with governments for community and frontline health workers, like recent applications to support health workers fighting COVID-19 in Ethiopia and Uganda

We also support health leaders to acquire and apply expertise to manage community health systems. Our Community Health Academy produces open-source, online leadership courses for health leaders on topics like designing, strengthening, and advocating for national community health worker programs, and financing for sustainability. 

The resources we develop are tailored to health leaders in the five countries where we work through blended learning opportunities, as well as available globally through our online platform. More than 31,000 learners across 200 countries and regions have accessed Community Health Academy content to date.



We leverage evidence and lessons learned building high-quality national community health systems to inform program design, policy making, and funding globally. 

For over two years, we partnered with academics, funders, NGOs, and research institutions in the community health sector on a global study that identified the drivers of high-performing national community health worker programs. Together, we identified Bangladesh, Brazil, Ethiopia, and Liberia as exemplar countries. Read the results here.

We also advocate for the adoption of best practices and policies in community health—from how to build national programs to how to pay for them. We achieve this by mobilizing wide and diverse coalitions of support to call for increased resources for community health programs to help governments unlock the full potential of their health systems.
