Local Health System Sustainability Project

Share This Page

Banyan Global is a subcontractor to Abt Associates on the $209 million, five-year United States Agency for International Development-funded Local Health System Sustainability project that works globally in up to 52 countries to strengthen their health systems as a means to achieve universal health coverage and improve population health and well-being. Interventions focus on reducing financial barriers, holding health services accountable for meeting all clients’ needs, and making sure that the care patients receive meets minimum standards. With an eye toward empowering countries to transition away from donor support, the project is strengthening the capacity of local organizations to lead implementation. Banyan Global is responsible for providing technical assistance to increase financial protection, population coverage, and service coverage of quality essential services.  Banyan Global also leads work to increase private investment in the health sector and to promote gender integration and social inclusion.
