Are you working to put in place better NCD care? Or have a practical idea for how to improve NCD care in your context? We’d like to hear from you as we launch a new initiative, the Healthcare Innovation Programme.
This initiative is a partnership between Oxford-based Primary Care International, a leading medical educator and BSE-listed, African financial services Group, Letshego Holdings Limited. We would particularly be interested to research ongoing projects and practical ideas in the Letshego footprint countries where the initiative will focus. These countries are Botswana, Kenya, Lesotho, Mozambique, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Namibia.
The Healthcare Innovation Programme
The Healthcare Innovation Programme is seeking to identify, highlight and support high-impact NCD initiatives within primary care. We know it can be challenging to bridge the gap between NCD strategy and real change. So we are researching practical innovations, in order to exchange ideas, showcase the best innovations, and in some cases offer direct support to help healthcare providers contain costs, increase quality and build capability.
Our focus is on the following areas:
• Strategic reviews, helping to identify priorities for healthcare systems in tackling NCDs
• Pragmatic evidence-based guidance that helps clinicians apply national clinical guidelines
• Training programmes and ongoing, long-term skills development for healthcare teams
A particular interest is new business models for healthcare and healthcare initiatives that are embedded in wider economic and community development programmes.
Primary Care International finds sustainable solutions for delivering quality and cost-effective community-based healthcare, particularly in low- and middle-income settings. Our social enterprise was launched in 2014 by Red Whale | GP Update, one of the UK’s leading providers of primary care medical education. We are helping to combat the increasing burden of NCDs by delivering training and strategic support for healthcare staff worldwide.
We look forward to hearing from you, as we seek to identify projects or possible projects with high potential for sustainable impact, either through this discussion thread or directly to .
