How We’re Doing It

Global Health Programs

Oxygen

We provide comprehensive oxygen access solutions in the Global South, including last-mile communities. Our solutions include innovative oxygen production, distribution, ownership models, and technical & clinical trainings. To-date, we have provided 150 hospitals access to life-saving oxygen.

Healthcare Technology Managagement

Our HTM program strengthens the medical device eco-system so medical equipment is available for safe & effective use when patients need it. We train biomedical engineers and technicians to manage the lifecycle of medical equipment with routine maintenance and critical repair.

Impact Anesthesia

Led by Vanderbilt University and AIC Kijabe, we partner to support The Improving Perioperative & Anesthesia Care and Training (ImPACT) Africa and Mobile Obstetric Team Training (MOST) programs that address serious needs around anesthesia in Kenya, Ethiopia, and Tanzania, training over 600 health workers to-date.

Equip Health Facilities

With support from local collaborators, we identify barriers that prevent equitable access to healthcare in low-resource settings. We then work with our network of partners to address the barriers by providing appropriate medical equipment, education, and other solutions through a wide range of programs and projects.

Project Echo

Project ECHO is a virtual educational platform that connects medical experts to frontline healthcare providers, delivering remote clinical training, mentoring, and active support.

Safe Surgery 2020

Since 2015, we have worked to improve surgical quality in low- and middle-income countries. To date the partnership has trained over 1750 surgical workers and placed 215 surgical equipment pieces across Ethiopia, Tanzania, and Cambodia.
