financial inclusion

A couple weeks ago I moderated a panel on Sustainable Health Services Models at the 6th Village Banking Forum held this year in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Two of our partners, Pro Mujer in Nicaragua and ESPOIR, presented what they had learned about what it takes to implement high performing health services programs via the village bank platform. While much was shared, one main takeaway I had was the importance of investing in staff capacity, particularly investing in those on the “frontline” of integrated service delivery with clients.
