PIVOT works in direct partnership with the Ministry of Public Health in Madagascar to create a “district healthcare in-a-box” model for universal healthcare. They train and deploy community health workers, buff up clinics and referral hospitals, and link everything through data systems that provide continuous feedback and evidence for what works. PIVOT has become an important player in the growing Community Health Worker (CHW) movement, and their research team has produced some of the most rigorous evidence in the sector to date.
Pivot is one of a bunch of primary healthcare organizations in Mulago’s portfolio self-organized into the Community Health Impact Coalition (CHIC). As individual organizations, they’ve each had outstanding impact and integration with their governments partners. But together they’ve created a movement that could be the impact jackpot. They speak with a louder voice when they call collectively for all community health workers to be salaried, skilled, supervised, supplied & incorporated into national strategies in order to achieve health for all.
