Finding and Forging Trust in Health Systems Strengthening

July 2, 2015

In East Africa, Joe Egger and his Bass Connections project team, Evaluation of Scaling Innovative Healthcare Delivery in East Africa, witnessed a region full of dedicated and entrepreneurial people involved in innovative activities to strengthen the healthcare system.

“Our Bass team met with people from nongovernmental organizations, faith-based organizations, small private clinics, large hospitals, business consultants, academics, community members and patients,” Dr. Egger writes. “Our goal in these discussions was to learn about promising new approaches to providing healthcare, and the challenges that private healthcare enterprises face in scaling the impact of their work in resource-limited settings like rural Rwanda and urban Nairobi.”
