New thinking for global health

Stema is a disruptive research group pioneering new approaches to community health and sustainable development

WORK WITH US

Half the world lacks access to essential healthcare

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.

A roadmap to healthy communities

We are developing a suite of tools and approaches that will bring the science of decision making to the field of global health.

IN BETA

Community Toolkit

Interventions are more successful when they actively engage the local community. Our toolkit has been developed to devise projects in collaboration with local people.

IN ALPHA

CROWDSOURCED DATA

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?
