    Options builds partnerships to transform the health of women and children. Better health for all is not something that can be achieved in isolation. We bring together partners with the knowledge, expertise and influence – governments, health workers, NGOs, businesses – to make change happen and ensure that everyone can access the health care they need. We have over 20 years’ experience of identifying and shaping complex programmes in the health and social sector – from safe motherhood programmes in Nepal to the MamaYe! and The Girl Generation campaigns across sub-Saharan Africa. We coordinate consortia, develop and manage frameworks to monitor and evaluate progress, and capture and share evidence of successful approaches. We know what works and bring both technical expertise and innovation to every programme we work on. Our approach is flexible, responsive and tailored to the local context. Our focus is always on building local skills and systems that last. We use data to drive improvements in the quality of services being delivered, and enable communities to use this information to demand the services they are entitled to. Our work is driven by the belief that everyone should have access to good quality, affordable health care. And while our core expertise and passion is in women and children’s health, our impact reaches far beyond this to making sustainable improvements in health systems in every country where we work.
