Last week, I attended the Global Conference on Primary Health Care in Astana, Kazakhstan. I was there to represent my colleagues who work in the small West African nation of Togo to strengthen primary health care systems. Our model integrates professional community health workers (CHWs) with improved care in public clinics, providing high-quality and cost-effective care to neglected populations. The conference provided a unique opportunity to connect with and learn from many other organizations and governments working to achieve health for all. At Integrate Health, we collaborate with others to constantly improve the care we provide to patients. We rely on adopting successful solutions from other places, and adapting them to our setting.
