We are dedicated to strengthening health systems through our global programs and capabilities, recognising that this is crucial to improving health and well-being of people worldwide. We believe that health system strengthening is a long-term process that requires collaboration with governments, civil society organisations, and international partners. Our approach seeks to improve the overall performance and resilience of health systems, from governance and financing to service delivery and workforce development. We always work within national frameworks to ensure our efforts align with local priorities and needs. By focusing on HIV, sexual and reproductive health, and viral hepatitis programming, we see opportunities to improve health systems more broadly. By enhancing the performance and resilience of health systems in these key areas, we can improve health outcomes for all.

Where we work
Our Strategy and Effectiveness Framework 2020-2024 outlines our approach to achieving our vision of eliminating HIV, viral hepatitis, and sexually transmissible infections as public health threats. The framework includes a detailed description of our strategic objectives, performance indicators, and action plans, as well as the key elements of its approach to effective implementation, including partnership and collaboration, knowledge exchange, capacity building, and policy and guideline development. The framework aims to guide our activities and ensure our contributions to the global health response are strategic, impactful, and sustainable.
How we work
ASHM Global operates in diverse settings worldwide, from Asia and the Pacific to Africa and beyond.
In the 2021-22 financial year, ASHM made significant strides in improving health outcomes globally, delivering 36 projects across 17 countries in the Asia-Pacific region, Africa, and the Caribbean. Our programs focused on key areas such as HIV, sexual and reproductive health, and viral hepatitis, and included activities such as capacity building, advocacy, research, and service delivery. Through our work, we reached over 360,000 people with information, testing, and treatment for HIV and viral hepatitis, trained over 10,000 healthcare workers, and contributed to policy and programmatic changes at national and regional levels. Additionally, we continued to prioritize local ownership, sustainability, and community engagement in all our global programs, promoting lasting change and improved health outcomes for all.
