We leverage process and technology innovations to develop, implement, and scale cost-effective, evidence-based, and high-impact solutions to stubborn health challenges and health inequities. We strive to expand patient and community access to mass screening, testing, treatment, and prevention programs for infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases, mental health, and surgical care. We work to facilitate treatment adherence and improvements in quality-of-life outcomes. We invest in bridging communication between healthcare providers and patients through innovative partnerships with communities, private providers, universities, governments, and non-governmental organizations.
We help build local leaders from community volunteers and front-line health workers and train and guide technical staff from the countries we work in towards world-class expertise and international networks. For us, ‘the Global South’ is home.
We enable robust program monitoring and evaluation systems. Our teams have pioneered open-source information technology innovations in mass health screening and immunization registration, mobile health applications, interactive messaging systems, digital conditional cash incentives for patients, caregivers, and health workers, electronic medical records, and civil registration and vital statistics systems.
IRD has over 15 years of experience in multi-country proposal development, grant management, and implementation and over five years of experience supporting multi-country requests for proposals and award management in global health delivery and research.
The IRD network has USD 100 million of active global health grants as of 2023.
The IRD team leverages process and technology innovations to bridge the global health delivery gap through scalable, cost effective and evidence based high-impact solutions. We improve access to cutting-edge diagnostics testing, use behavioral and economic strategies to improve treatment adherence, and utilize open source information technology platforms to enable efficiencies in order to scale up programs.
Our work is touching the lives of more than 100 million people every day. We have taken the IRD model to everywhere we work – bringing the best-trained nationals back to their countries for meaningful and rewarding work. We operate out of a network of strategic hubs and deploy impactful health infrastructure across the world.
