Making systems work better for health
WHO WE ARE
Ata Health is on a mission to make systems work better for health. And we believe the key to unlocking the highest performance, sustainabliity and resilience of health systems is to elevate the capacity of health workers and organizations.
We are focused on this task.
We take the time to understand root causes and pain points in the public health programs of our government and non-profit partners. We design focused solutions and offer ongoing services to support their implementation. We aspire to uphold equity, peer-learning, and local voice in everything we do.
Our team is comprised of experienced leaders and researchers in public health, who have led important health workforce and organizational capacity initiatives for U.S. government and other partners.
