Local Policy, Lasting Impact

PROPEL Health works with local actors to improve conditions for more equitable and sustainable health services, supplies, and delivery systems, especially in the areas of family planning and reproductive health and its integration with HIV, maternal and child health, and primary healthcare.

We focus on resilience and sustainability by promoting local implementation, fostering local capacity, and surfacing, testing, and scaling locally led innovations.


PROPEL Health’s interlinked, multi-disciplinary approaches equip local actors with the necessary evidence, capacity, and adaptable best practices to activate context-responsive policy, advocacy, financing, and governance levers and drive improved health outcomes. Our work accelerates measurable health impacts including equitable access to responsive services, increased uptake of health services, and increased use of modern contraceptives.
