Improving health outcomes and wellness

Improving the health status of a country’s population is a key element in promoting economic growth and prosperity, reducing poverty, and improving quality of life. Infectious diseases and family health issues—though well controlled or even eliminated in developed countries—still cause immense suffering in the poorest parts of the world.

What we offer

We work with global clients to develop strategies for improving health outcomes among underserved communities. We have experience in over 30 countries across North and South America, sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and Europe, where we work to improve geographic and financial access to healthcare, promote a culture of health, reduce disparities, and improve health outcomes.

Particular areas of focus include:

  • Design and implement sustainable and market-based approaches for improved access to high-quality care, reduced inequities, and improved population health
  • Enable creative partnerships for multi-sectoral approaches to improving health and wellness
  • Support policy development for equitable health systems
  • Align health programing with social investing for maximizing social benefit in healthcare

Issue to Impact: Roll back malaria

The Issue:
Malaria is a disease that is still ravaging the world. One child dies from malaria in Africa every minute, and there are 200 million mosquito-induced illnesses per year globally. World Health Organization (WHO) engaged Deloitte to assist in the effort to eliminate malaria through a 10-year Global Malaria Action Plan (GMAP). WHO and Deloitte sought to address this issue by engaging all relevant stakeholders around this issue.

Our Impact:
Deloitte worked with 500+ partners to help WHO develop a “business case” for addressing the issue of malaria. We involved regional, international, academic, private sector, and other participants to gain buy-in. GMAP will be launched in May 2015, with common goals, strategies, and activities. We also developed communications and coordination across all sectors and guided the allocation of resources to maximize results of this collaboration for a malaria-free world.
