Economic growth, social stability, and quality of life all depend on the health and well-being of a nation’s citizens. When children are healthy, they can learn. When parents are healthy, they can earn for their families. Healthy families and communities invest in themselves and their future. Our teams design, develop, deploy, and sustain social determinants of health interventions that are patient and provider accessible, improve health and overall well-being, and deliver more value at a reduced overall cost.

By working with international development partners, ministries of health, the private sector, and other key stakeholders, Palladium’s experts apply unique user-centred models and approaches that improve health systems and supply chains; provide an evidence base for health policy and program reform; and address governance and financing challenges that create barriers to healthcare. Palladium’s focus is on creating self-reliant, sustainable health systems that are flexible and responsive to emerging economic and health shocks such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Our expertise cuts across a range of health areas, including family planning and reproductive health; HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, COVID-19, and other infectious diseases; maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health; nutrition; water, sanitation, and hygiene; and chronic diseases.

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.
