Through partnership, invention and innovation, Dignitas is strengthening health systems in Malawi and Northern Ontario. We’re working with health workers, researchers, policymakers, and communities to make health care more accessible, efficient, and effective. Our objective is to apply and share what we have learned so that as many people as possible can benefit.
We are training and mentoring health workers to effectively deliver health services to both adults and children for HIV, TB, diabetes and other diseases.This ultimately improving the health of the whole population and decreasing demands on the health system. We are building the capacity of clinicians, nurses and community health workers to safely and effectively perform tasks that would normally be performed by physicians, thereby reducing bottlenecks in access to treatment and care. By working at a system-level, we are increasing the number of people who can access health care in their communities.
