Stema is a disruptive research group pioneering new approaches to community health and sustainable development
At the same time, $161 billion USD is spent every year on foreign aid (OECD). How can this be? Working in low resource settings across the globe, STEMA has identified common challenges to sustaining healthy communities.
Too often, decision-makers face a lack of accessible data, and struggle to choose effective and sustainable interventions without a deep understanding of the local context.
Meanwhile, those at the frontline of health inequalities rarely have a stake in designing relevant health interventions, and the informal health systems they already use are often overlooked.
STEMA's mission is to develop tools and approaches that will empower everyone to find sustainable solutions for community health in low-resource settings.
We are developing a suite of tools and approaches that will bring the science of decision making to the field of global health.
Interventions are more successful when they actively engage the local community. Our toolkit has been developed to devise projects in collaboration with local people.
Low-resource settings often lack the data decision makers need. But what if you could use smartphone photography to accurately predict health metrics on the ground?
Through mathematical modelling, STEMA is building a system to support decision makers in identifying the most effective potential health interventions.
STEMA's approach is informed by extensive fieldwork in low-resource settings around the world
Our work is supported by rigorous scientific research, in partnership with leading institutions, NGOs and charities on the ground.
