Scaling Consumer-Powered Healthcare Research to Inform a Client-Centered Approach to Self-Care
2021 - 2024 | Global | Malawi | Mozambique | Nepal
Self-care interventions are among the most promising new approaches to improve health and well-being— allowing people to become agents of their own health and reducing the burden on strained healthcare systems. The WHO defines self-care as, “the ability of individuals, families and communities to promote health, prevent disease, maintain health, and cope with illness and disability with or without the support of a healthcare provider.”
Under this project, PSI is developing, implementing, and disseminating self-care research in three countries (Malawi, Mozambique, and Nepal) to respond to evidence gaps and provide critical insights for self-care design, implementation, and scale-up.
