In your work to bring the benefits of high-quality facilities and modern technologies to resource-poor settings, your organization will likely have to build some infrastructure. The unit considers how, with careful planning and engaging skilled, committed partners, you can improve a site’s buildings, water and power supply, sanitation system, and telecommunications capabilities. Collaboration with local authorities and implementing country standards are critical, and help to earn the trust of the government and the people in the community. A clean, well-maintained health facility sends a powerful message that your organization upholds the dignity of patients, their families, and your staff.
