ETC aims to contribute to equitable and high-quality public health services in low and middle income countries. We focus on Performance Based Financing, Impact Evaluation in SRHR and health sector performance. We offer short and medium term consultancy services to governments, NGOs and the private sector. We combine technical advice with interventions aimed at strengthening the local capacities of our clients.
Population health plays a major part in sustainable development. Any changes in human ecology affect the health patterns and survival of populations. Public health professionals endeavor to address population health from a broader context of political, socio-economic and environmental influences. Major transitions have taken place over the past half a century, such as an impressive increase in life expectancy and considerable transformation of disease patterns. As the health profile of populations is changing, health care systems are severely challenged in providing equitable and high-quality services as well as to demonstrate value for money in health care expenditure.
Our ambitions and goals
ETC aims to ensure a sound connection between public health policy and practice, with a view to supporting the provision of equitable and high-quality health services and ultimately contributing to sustainable development for current and future generations.
We take a multi-pronged approach towards strengthening health care systems in low and middle income countries. On the one hand, we seek to collect evidence on health sector performance to inform public health policy and practice at large or in certain domains, e.g. in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, health sector governance. On the other hand, we roll out innovative models in the sector aimed at promoting efficient use of resources and accountability to users. Our approach is based on accumulated knowledge and experience with health systems strengthening, and draws from quantitative and qualitative studies as well as from our interactions with providers and users of health care services.
