Innovision is supporting development partners to design and manage interventions on malaria control, maternal new-borns and child health (MNCH), management of chronic diseases, sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR). While health care continues and will continue to be driven by public health interventions, there is an increasing interest on supporting the private sector to establish viable models that could meet the health care needs of the people living under the poverty line.
Affordability, accessibility, and awareness are keys to sustaining such models. We are supporting malaria control programmes to develop viable models for distribution of preventive and curative products through commercial channels. We were one of the key technical partners on the design of a health innovation challenge fund programme.
CROSS CUTTING ISSUES
Climate Risk Mitigation
Climate risk mitigation refers to climate-sensitive decision making. The approach promotes sustainable development by reducing the vulnerability associated with climate risk by minimizing negative outcomes for communities in fields such as agriculture and health. Apart from mitigating adverse effects from climate risks, it also helps to maximize opportunities in climate-sensitive economic issues such as maximizing crop productivity by utilizing seasonal forecasts by farmers.
Gender & Equality
Gender & Equality mostly focuses on the Women’s Right and Economic Development. According to UNICEF, it seeks to ensure that the women and men, boy and girls enjoy the same rights, resources, opportunities and protection but does not require them to be treated exactly alike.
The disadvantaged are typically men and women from lower-income backgrounds with reduced capability suffering from social exclusion and have limited access to resources and economic opportunities. They are often landless or marginal farmers operating on the most unproductive land.
