Pact is giving people better access to vital health and social services by strengthening local systems and building the capacity of local institutions to improve services long beyond our presence.
In partnership with communities, governments, local nonprofits and care providers and the private sector, we improve health and social systems around the world, especially those that serve people who are challenged by poverty and marginalization, expanding families’ access to quality health care and essential social services.
We use systems practice methodology to pioneer sustainable health programming that places local communities at the heart of our work. Our programming builds on platforms of HIV/AIDS services, family and child health and social services for orphans and vulnerable children.
Our health work has three main focuses:
*Disease prevention, care and treatment
*Pandemic preparedness and response
Last year, more than 2 million people gained improved access to health and social services because of Pact.
Our integrated approach links health with livelihoods, governance, capacity development, and monitoring and evaluation. We support community-based organizations through grants and technical, organizational and institutional capacity building, enabling them to develop and sustain quality health and social services, products and information. At the same time, we engage with stakeholders to create a policy environment supportive of solutions to a range of public health needs.
