What We Do  |  DRive sustained impact

Working in partnership to achieve transformational change.

Drive Sustained Impact

VillageReach works with governments and the private sector to drive sustained impact at scale. We recognize that merely developing solutions is not sufficient; we need to see those changes sustained. Even proven solutions have failed to develop and scale in a way that allows governments to embrace, afford and manage the solutions. 

We co-create solutions with government, partners and communities

 

See governments as the stewards of our solutions

Ensuring the solution aligns with government priorities even if other private sector or other partners are operating or managing all, or parts of the solution.

Encourage funders to provide resources and time 

To ensure impactful solutions are embedded into the public sector.

Transitioning Well Initiative

To achieve this work, VillageReach launched the Transitioning Well initiative in 2019. It guides our approach to transitioning VillageReach solutions and engages stakeholders because we cannot drive sustained impact alone.

Transitioning Well Initiative Summary

Request Transitioning Well Guidelines

Implementation and Evaluation Guidance

  • Solution Description
  • Solution Toolkit
  • Transition Strategy
  • Transition Readiness Assessment (TRA) Guideline & Tool
  • Transition Plan
  • Skill Development Plan
  • Evaluation & Adaptation Plan
This guideline helps stakeholders identify the core elements needed to operate a solution. It provides instructions on how to define the solution scope and its elements, and how to create and validate the solution description.

This guideline covers instructions for how to create a solution toolkit that ensures all operational staff have the required knowledge for effective solution implementation, including standard operating procedures, reference materials and tools.

This guideline helps solution owners and partners identify and document the goals and vision for transition, aligning the solution team and government or receiving partner around roles and responsibilities, resources, risks and mitigating factors.

The TRA guideline helps stakeholders understand when and how to assess the readiness of a solution to transition using the TRA tool. The tool provides a detailed description of the seven critical dimensions outlined in the transition to government framework.

This guideline aids stakeholders to develop, update and maintain a Transition Plan. It includes required actions and associated timelines to address any issues identified through the TRA.

This guideline helps stakeholders design a plan that develops or enhances the necessary skills for the entity managing or operating the solution post transition. This plan assumes that with the right skills, solution impact and fidelity can be maintained.

This guideline provides stakeholders with direction on how to monitor solution key performance indicators throughout a transition, as well as how to evaluate solution fidelity and impact post transition.

Solution Amplification

Transitioning solutions to other partners and embedding them into the public sector requires a mindset shift for funders, government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and other partners. We collaborate with stakeholders to learn from their experiences with transition, as well as to amplify key messages from our Transitioning Well initiative.

Radical collaboration with the private sector

The private sector can play a critical role in transforming health care delivery. In an effort to radically collaborate with the private sector to drive sustained impact at scale, we help to build strong public-private collaborations, which ultimately allows private sector innovations and expertise to fill gaps in the public health systems.

Using Private Sector Firms for Outsourced Transportation in Public Health Systems

Case Studies

  • LAST MILE SUPPLY CHAIN
  • Chipatala cha pa Foni
  • OpenLMIS
  • SUPply chain integrators

In Mozambique, the Last Mile Supply Chain program brought together the government and private sector company Bolloré Transport & Logistics and Agility to ensure health products reach everyone, everywhere.

In Malawi, the Chipatala cha pa Foni (CCPF) program brought together the government and private sector telecommunications company Airtel to make calls to the national health hotline toll free.

Globally, OpenLMIS has transitioned to private sector steward Vitalliance to help enhance the software and expand the reach to more countries in Africa.

Globally, Supply Chain Integrators is a catalytic investment to build health supply chains that are demand-driven, resilient and integrated.
