SSRG AT A GLANCE

We are a small, nimble team, experienced in navigating both local and global forces. Members of our team come from different backgrounds and disciplines. Women and youth are well-represented on our team. Our experienced board members are knowledgeable in legal matters, the community health strategy, primary health care, education, nursing, and politics.

 

ACTIVITIES

HOUSEHOLD SURVEYS AND HEALTH SYSTEM ASSESSMENTS

For accurate and timely data collection.

To determine the burden of diseases at the community level, we conduct routine household surveys with community health workers. In addition, we assess health systems to determine their capacity to serve the needs of communities.

MONITORING & EVALUATION OF HEALTH INDICATORS

For increased accountability

We use digitized tools to collect data on key health indicators.

CAPACITY BUILDING

Up-skilling the health workforce with partners to expand access to basic health services.

Context specific capacity building focusing on the most common diseases.

YOUTH ENGAGEMENT

Mentoring youth for a better tomorrow

We are growing our cohort of future leaders in science, technology, and health. 

Quote from parent: “I thank you most sincerely for sharing and making your contribution towards her life. Thank you not only for thinking about young girls interested in science, but also for standing at the front and showing them the way. Thanks for opening up your life, space and experiences to mentor and nurture them. And thanks for keeping your word.”
