Biography

Founded in 2001, Health Focus GmbH is an independent consultancy providing advice and technical support for governments, bilateral and multilateral development agencies and also private and civil society organisations. Health Focus’ mission is to contribute to the improvement of health systems and the health status of populations especially in low and middle income countries. We respond to existing challenges through the provision of advice and tailor-made programmes. This involves technical expertise and professional process facilitation. We assess country and sector specific environments, and moderate communication and exchange between key actors; we encourage the consideration of differing viewpoints and initiate the integration of diverse or conflicting interests. Transparency and open-mindedness are indispensable for this process. Given increasing urbanisation rates in SSA, and the impacts (both postive and negative) of urban environments on human health, we are exploring opportunities to expand operations into the area of urban health. As such, we are interested in how modifications to the built environment could be used to reduce the transmission of insect-borne diseases.
