Stema is an approach, framework and tool that places
this concept of resourcefulness at the core of its work,
to improve the health and well-being of people

We take a systems and design thinking approach to address broader systems failures in achieving human health and wellbeing in low resource settings worldwide. This transforms both how we think about health challenges and how we approach solving those challenges.

Understanding local context is crucial. Through understanding informal community systems that operate to support and promote human health, we are able to better understand how communities use local resources, and how orchestration of local resources can help health interventions be more effective and more sustainable.

Stema is an approach, framework and network that enable communities to best mobilise local resources, transform existing resources, and/or adapt external resources to improve their health and wellbeing.
