Hospitals for low-resource settings.
Our approach
Our research
Our pilots

We are delivering healthcare that works in low-resource settings.

There have been significant advances in technology, engineering innovation, social innovation and decision support that make the existing barriers to entry surmountable. The challenge is bringing these together.

Through Stema, we are drawing from our experience in four countries across different low-resource settings, building a decision-support system that optimises health service provision, and then selecting and implementing technologies using a patient-centred design approach. This creates a hospital ecosystem that is community-first, and works with high efficiency and efficacy regardless of poor resources.

The UCL Institute for Global Health uses cross-disciplinary research, collaborates with communities at all levels, and offering workable solutions for policy makers.
DB Peru brings primary and emergency healthcare, dental clinics, medicines, communications equipment and donated supplies to the villages along the Napo River.
Altro and the Altro Foundation provide safe and hygienic materials in healthcare and education environments and community groups in need of physical spaces.
