EfD has released a new case study on Jacaranda Health, a non-profit social enterprise focused on improving the quality of low cost maternal and newborn healthcare in Africa. Services are provided through maternity hospitals with 12 to 15 beds, equipped with a laboratory, pharmacy and the essential equipment needed for delivery and postnatal care.
The case study provides an overview of the Jacaranda Health business model, how the business has grown to date, and how it intends to scale up over the coming years.
EfD is supporting this scale up process by helping Jacaranda to become a regional hub for quality improvement in maternal and newborn health by exploring the option of replicating its systems in other private health facilities through management partnerships. See here for more information.
