The Health Policy Area (HP) is one of the most consolidated areas of the Firm. Projects carried out in this area relate to reform in resource management, financing, service delivery, and sector stewardship.
Recent reforms implemented in health systems have been oriented towards improving the health of targeted groups by attending to a population’s needs while at the same time augmenting the efficiency of the institutions and organizations involved. For instance, Sanigest has supported key institutions in implementing sanitary reforms in countries around the world.
Traditionally, the Firm has rigorously linked the technical approaches to the socioeconomic and political context of the country where reforms are carried out. Likewise, when assisting organizations in putting reforms into practice, Sanigest strives to transfer practical knowledge, ensuring local key actors are empowered and actively participate in the processes they are involved with.
Moreover, this practice area also encompasses the research and publication of specialized articles and reports developed by the interdisciplinary network of our in-house and associate consultants. These efforts guarantee that the approaches presented to our clients are continually updated and innovative, and keep the firm at the forefront of the latest trends in health system reform.
Some Projects within this area include:
Preparation of a Technical Proposal and Implementation of a Universal Health Insurance Model in the Department of Gracias a Dios, which includes the Health Care, Management, and Financing Model
Sanigest was assigned by UNDP to design and implement a health insurance model in the Gracias a Dios Department in Honduras. The team implemented a health care model based on a quality improvement program and access to health services of the most socially vulnerable population, as well as synchronize the assistance activities of the health units with the rest of the area service network. Sanigest also designed and implemented a financial-economic management model which allowed the establishment of a common fund for financing health service in the Gracias a Dios Department community.Project Details
