WHAT WE DO
QUALITY ASSURED LABORATORY NETWORKS
We build national and international quality improvement networks, empowering participants to share knowledge and lessons learned.
DATA COLLECTION & ANALYTICS
Our beneficiaries and funders deserve clear metrics and accountability. We start every project by assessing available
data and make decisions based
on ongoing data collection and analysis.
HEALTH SYSTEMS LOGISTICS
We simplify equipment maintenance, supply-chain analysis and forecasting
to give healthcare workers in resource -limited settings continuous and efficient
access to essential tools and reagents.
TRAINING & COMMUNICATIONS
Our passion to strengthen human resources for health goes beyond training.
With continuous communication
and mentorship we build resilient cadres of in-country professionals empowered with the skills to provide the
highest quality health care.
RAPID DEPLOYMENT OF DISEASE DETECTION TECHNOLOGIES
Our ability to detect, track and address current, emerging and future biothreats, depends on a comprehensive understanding of the threat environment and rapid field-identification of potential pathogens as close to the source as possible. Recognizing the need for field-deployable disease detection and surveillance, GSSHealth uses a rapid next generation sequencing deployment approach to establish surveillance in austere environments.
GLOBAL HEALTH SECURITY STRENGTHENING
During the Ebola response, we conducted quality assessments of personal protective equipment, provided training and coordination at Ebola community care centers in Sierra Leone and collected and validated surveillance data. We also developed flexible forecasting tools to model Ebola emergency supplies and are finalizing an emergency response package for more than 20 high risk diseases. Our work as a Global Health Security Agenda partner has enabled us to deliver local biosecurity solutions to reduce the risk of disease outbreaks.
MILITARY LABORATORY NETWORKS
Protection of the healthcare workforce is critical for our military personnel and our foreign military partners. We establish high-quality military disease surveillance facilities that provide network coverage for pre- and post-deployment. Our work as an implementing partner for the Military Laboratory Quality Improvement (MLQI) Network in West and Central Africa has facilitated the development of a model for strengthening military laboratory partnerships and advancing the standard of military laboratory services, particularly for HIV/AIDS diagnosis and surveillance.
