Ata Health

Making systems work better for health

Ata Health is on a mission to make systems work better for public health.  Our goal is to improve public health systems performance, sustainabliity and resilience by strengthening the capability and collaboration of public health workers and organizations.  


We are a nimble team of experts focused on this niche.  Our team is made up of seasoned leaders and researchers in global health, with strong track records leading important health workforce and organizational capacity programs for U.S. government, World Bank, and other partners.   


 We produce research, evaluation, and strategy, and we design and implement programs as an established sub-partner in multi-year initiatives.  Our focus areas include public health workforce, organizational sustainability, national public health institutes, and public health networks.  We aspire to uphold equity, peer-learning, and local voice in everything we do.
