Our Priorities

We work with partners to strengthen the primary healthcare workforce and the systems around them, with a particular focus on NCDs.

By 2025 we aim to reach 25,000 healthcare workers globally, caring for 7 million people.

We will do this by combining an integrated, patient-centred approach to care with a population health perspective.



Together with our partners, we produce pragmatic, actionable guidance, learning resources and toolkits drawing on our global experience as well as international



Bridging the gap between policy and action, we offer evidence-based training and mentoring, build leadership cadres and facilitate cascade of knowledge and skills.



We support needs analysis and priority setting for the wider transformation of primary healthcare systems. We test innovative models designed as demonstration projects
for scale up by others.

Our key goals focus on:

  • Health workforce capacity strengthening
  • Testing innovative models of primary care
  • Nurturing local leadership

We see the use of digital leaning as an enabler, with potential to reach more people and realise a greater impact. Our learning management system hosts blended learning experiences for our partners combining interactive case-based e-learning with integrated ‘live’ learning opportunities via our digital classroom. Learning is designed for use in limited bandwidth settings, can be accessed online and offline, and just like our face-to-face work, takes an evidence-based pragmatic approach to putting knowledge and skills into practice.
