Creating a sustainable impact on global health has been part of Proximie’s DNA from day one. Our Global Health Initiative is a crucial aspect of delivering on that mission. In collaboration with a range of partners, we’re improving health outcomes by deploying technology together with a robust change management process, to enable top-tier surgical training, mentorship, and quality improvement where the needs are greatest.
Surgery can no longer be neglected. Enabling local health systems to provide safe, timely, and affordable surgical interventions is essential to achieving universal health coverage.
To improve health outcomes at global scale, we are committed to empowering local health systems and the communities they serve to learn with and from each other.
We work in partnership with governments, health ministries, development agencies, academic institutions, philanthropies, and the local private sector to scale their efforts and accelerate their impact.
Our platform is built for implementation in low bandwidth areas—from field tents to remote district hospitals—using off-the-shelf hardware. It enables health providers to share expertise from anywhere through powerful telepresence and collaboration tools.
We are advocates for long-term, locally based engagement models. We collaborate with a range of partners to co-design technology interventions that address the challenges faced by local health systems.
The ability to course correct is central to innovation. We promote a culture of adaptive learning to guide the scale-up and spread of our technology. For every initiative, we measure evidence of our impact and identify the best practices to share globally.
Since our first initiative in Kenya in 2020, we’ve proven our contribution to building the capacity of the surgical health workforce with the aim to improve surgical quality, and reduce the societal cost and economic impact as an outcome of poor surgical care. A significant ROI of our technology has been demonstrated by increased health system efficiencies.
We’re enabling training and mentorship within a network of five facilities with Jhpiego and the County Governorate to standardize Obstetric Safe Surgery interventions to treat women in resource-limited settings.
We’re enabling remote surgical assistance and professional mentorship to help ENT surgeons treat conditions of the head and neck in Addis Ababa and Mekelle.
We’re supporting a Saving Mother’s project to strengthen surgical capacity in laparoscopic uro-gynecological surgery and management of postpartum hemorrhage.
The talent and passion of our seasoned team members is instrumental to our success. They place the patient and their communities above all. From co-designing new innovation hubs, to working with stakeholders on the ground, or objectively measuring our impact, our team is at the forefront of innovation in global health.
