Economic growth, social stability, and quality of life all depend on the health and well-being of a nation’s citizens.
At the heart of our approach to delivering positive health impact is building resilient health systems so that developing countries can provide sustainable, quality healthcare to all their citizens.
Palladium innovates beyond the World Health Organization’s building blocks framework by facilitating whole-of-government and multisector approaches to healthcare planning and delivery, with active participation of public and private actors. We intentionally seek out innovations in demand for and supply of high-quality services, allowing entry of new players into health markets.
This dual approach enables us to contribute to short-term gains in health-related goals as well as to longer-term systemic change, such as institutional arrangements, governance, and accountability.
Palladium works to implement digital health tools and health informatics data to ensure a reliable and sustainable approach to health care. We support evidence-based, adaptive approaches to designing, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating health programs. We perform rigorous—but cost-effective—action-oriented research, monitoring, and evaluation that informs project start-up, refines implementation, and provides insight into sustainability and scalability.
We believe that local leadership and ownership drive sustainability, and we recognise the importance of working with and within national systems and priorities. As such, our host governments and national partners take the lead in identifying needs and we invest our expertise in developing local capacity enhancement at all stages of program delivery. Furthermore, we have a proven track record in fragile and conflict-affected environments, where we utilise our global footprint and security infrastructure to partner with non-state actors to meet the health needs of poor and vulnerable populations in challenging operating areas.
Palladium works to advance equitable health policies that are country-led, inclusive of all voices, evidence-based, and supported through adequate financing. Our support has contributed to the development of laws, action plans, and policies that enable access to affordable healthcare for millions of people. We use analytical models, tools, and data to uncover priority needs and best practices that strengthen government stewardship and enable better decision-making and resource mobilisation, supporting evidence-informed leadership at all levels from global to local levels. We design, implement, and conduct legal and regulatory analysis, and we identify and work with partners to reduce operational barriers around access to health services. We support health financing reform for universal access to high-quality services; mainstream vertical programs into health financing arrangements; provide evidence to support advocacy for increased domestic resources; improve technical efficiency of health services; and engage the private sector for mobilising private capital and reaching universal coverage.
We believe in a multi-sectoral approach to improving health outcomes, and we work with policy makers to formalise processes for involving civil society and the private sector, as well as working to build the technical, advocacy, and organisational capacity of civil society organisations and vulnerable populations. Furthermore, we promote policies that mandate accountability and transparency from government departments and ministries, and we work to enable citizens to hold their governments accountable for health service delivery.

Our goal is to ensure partner countries are agents of their own growth and prosperity. Palladium takes a partnership approach to capacity strengthening that is responsive to local needs and solutions at all national and sub-national levels. This is the cornerstone of long-term sustainable development. Our experts strive to identify and pursue opportunities to strengthen local capacity
to support good governance, transparency and stewardship of resources, empowering civil society, and media to hold governments accountable. By helping stakeholders to identify strategic goals, assess existing capacity, and strengthen their performance, Palladium fosters stakeholders’ ability to sustain and lead local development and enable greater resilience.
Our focus on localisation emphasises private sector engagement. Palladium identifies and facilitates the development of partnerships that create shared value for public sector impact and private sector interests, including those with non-governmental organisations, faith-based organisations, and commercial actors. Our work includes financing development activities and outcomes, supporting direct implementation of interventions, outsourcing services, and developing other partnership structures that provide tangible benefits for society and a positive impact on the bottom line of participating companies. We foster public-private partnerships to increase access to priority services and commodities, and we take a total market approach that creates dialogue amongst all stakeholders in health markets to find opportunities for greater impact and sustainability of health interventions.

Palladium approaches gender as part of a cross-cutting social inclusion strategy that recognises the intersections of gender with other social, cultural, and economic inequities. Our holistic approach to gender-transformative policy and behavioural change strengthens the environment to enable health systems to adequately meet the health needs of women, men, and youth from diverse backgrounds.
Upholding human rights has always been at the centrefold of Palladium’s approach to health and development. By taking a human right- and equity-based approach to health, we support local partners to develop responsive and accountable health policies and programs that improve demand of and access to quality health services for all populations, regardless of race, gender, cultural or economic status.
