Contexte The Health Program at Tdh works to contribute to the sustainable reduction of morbidity and mortality of pregnant women, newborns, and children under five, and to the reduction of child malnutrition. Tdh’s Health Program looks for existing accurate life-saving interventions, adapts and implements them in all circumstances including in fragile contexts, and pilots innovative tools, conceived and implemented with renowned partners at local and international level. Tdh leverages and exploits the technological advancements for more cost effective, impact relevant and efficient country-driven interventions, making the interventions suitable and sustainable for scaling up. Digital health is currently one of the priority areas of Tdh’s Health Program, to amplify and accelerate impact by improving accurate diagnosis and treatment and supporting effective local health information systems and surveillance. Each action is embedded in the local health systems, with a strong focus on developing local partnerships (including with the local private sector, academia, and others), pursue sustainability and economic viability, and aim at scaling it up for systemic changes. Tdh strives to support health systems to maintain their capacity to effectively respond to existing and arising needs in various contexts (emergency, chronic crisis, development) without the disruption of existing services. The voice of communities, families, local authorities, and partners are heard and integrated in Tdh actions. A user-centric approach guides the conception and development of Tdh activities. Tdh’s Health Program is focused on improving access to primary healthcare services for vulnerable children and mothers in rural and semi-urban areas of Africa and Asia. Tdh will progressively explore other health fields of action in other countries, notably in the Middle East, North Africa, Latin America, and Europe.
