At the Catalyst Group’s Health Practice, we consider it our responsibility to partner, especially with vulnerable communities, to help realise this potential through health and well-being.
Through a 360-degree approach, we leverage the strengths of a global social impact consulting firm and 25 years of experience. The Health Practice works across both Catalyst Management Services and its sister organisation, Swasti, a global south public health agency that partners with communities at the last mile to further health and well-being.
Our work centres around Health Systems Strengthening and Community Systems Strengthening with the aim of achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC), health equity and quality primary care for all.
