Impact

You can improve health outcomes of a community or region at 3 levels: at the system level, at the facility level and at the patient-level. Given the diversity, the model and the scale of its initiatives, CPHD has been able to touch many lives and at all levels. Its strength has been bringing about a shift in the mindset of the people taking care of the healthcare system, at shaping new policies as well as creating a platform for partnerships that were not even considered before.
