Health inequity affects vulnerable communities disparately across the World. Its persistent nature makes it the World’s most challenging development problem. We at Swasti believe people must be at the centre of health systems for it to effectively work for the poor.
We are driven by uncompromising compassion and the dream of adding 100 million well-thy days to the lives of the most marginalized by 2030. A critical insight that drives us is the understanding that lack of healthcare is ‘Violence and Injustice’ affecting the poor.
Our agenda is to change the way wellbeing pathways are achieved, starting with primary healthcare and tackling social determinants that direct how we experience everyday wellbeing. Our Glocal multi-disciplinary team co-designs demonstrable and scalable solution models in partnership with communities on the ground and influences policies nationally and internationally.
Our initiatives, ongoing and new, help communities, governments and partners to shape safer and secure, healthier and prosperous lives across the world. We recognise that challenges to wellbeing are not just limited to health. Personal, social, economic and environmental factors determine the health outcomes of people and communities. Hence, our models address the interrelationship between these factors, employ a multitude of approaches and focus on outcomes and scale with quality. Our comprehensive, four-pronged delivery approach promotes health outcomes among the poor.
We excel at (1) Demonstrating scalable, cost-effective and sustainable models in partnership with communities (2) Supporting partners to reach impact and (3) Drawing the threads from action research into evidence, learning and action to influence paradigm shifts in systems and thinking around wellbeing.
Our work loops Policy-Practise-Policy, at sub-national, national, regional and international levels with a range of partners among impact organisations, bilateral, multilateral, government, foundations, academic and corporate bodies.
