World Health Partners believes that a sustainable healthcare system must ensure two foundational elements: prevent onset of illnesses and ensure simple illnesses don’t get serious. A system that efficiently delivers preventive and primary healthcare close to the clients is the tool that will make this possible. By adopting triaging principles, secondary and tertiary care becomes a logical extension of this approach.
We are a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing healthcare within a walkable distance to underserved communities ‘here and now’. We harness already existing resources in every sector without ideological constraints. We use management systems and technologies to fashion them into an effective service delivery channel. This means a range of interconnected processes: medical professionals in urban areas digitally connected with rural patients; local entrepreneurs or quasi-medical personnel invest to join the network as facilitators; metrics in real time to supervisors; management tools to doctors to ensure mass provisioning of care; and supply chain that works on flowcasting principles to ensure efficient inventory control.

Women and children are the ultimate beneficiaries of WHP because they gain the most when small drugshops are transformed into quality pharmacies. Why? Because in many countries, the vast majority of women and children seek healthcare in the private, informal sector and improving the quality of that care can prevent many maternal and child deaths.
