Global Health

FSG has worked in 20 low- and middle-income countries, learning and working while partnering with philanthropic institutions, corporations, multilaterals, and nongovernmental organizations on some of the toughest health problems confronting patients and communities. By working closely with these partners on the ground and in the boardroom, we activate fresh ideas, new resources, and lasting solutions.

Global Health Projects


We have knowledge and networks on a host of diseases, including the following:

  • Infectious diseases, such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and multi-drug resistant TB, malaria, and diarrheal disease
  • Non-communicable diseases, such as diabetes, mental health, and heart disease
  • Neglected tropical diseases, such as trachoma, onchocerciasis, dengue fever, and visceral leishmaniasis

We focus on vulnerable groups, such as women and children, and have experience with the following issues:

  • Reproductive rights and family planning
  • Maternal and newborn health
  • Nutrition

Our expertise includes the systems that provide preventative, treatment, and care services to patients around the world, including the following:

  • Water, sanitation, and hygiene challenges
  • Disease awareness, advocacy, and financing
  • Health system integration
  • Other systemic and population-level issues

We tap into FSG’s approaches to social change to create long-lasting solutions, including the following:

  • Creating and evaluating catalytic strategies that maximize impact
  • Leveraging market forces to sustainably resolve global health challenges
  • Designing collaborative solutions to increase scale

FSG helped us be more intentional, structured, and thoughtful about our work. The work isn’t completely new, but the way we talk about it, think about it, measure it, and resource it now is much smarter. FSG consulted with peers, grant partners, and other people working in the area, which allowed us to do more work with the right people in the right places for impact. Working with FSG is a good value for the money. The whole process might seem expensive, but the learning you get from the process is well worth it.
