E_SDG goals_icons-individual-rgb-03

CSD aims to improve the availability, affordability, accessibility, and quality of health care services in low- and middle-income countries by:

  • developing low-cost solutions and health care implementation models;
  • conducting implementation research to promote effective adaptation, application, and scale up of health solutions to “real world” settings;
  • advising national, district, and local governments on health policy and health systems strengthening; and
  • building capacity of communities and institutions to advance public health initiatives.



  • Dr. Safaa Suliman’s work with the Oral Health and Hygiene Project has contributed to the establishment of an oral health task force in the Ethiopian Ministry of Health.
  • The Tropical Laboratory Initiative is bringing laboratory and diagnostic services to low-resource, rural communities to ensure timely and appropriate treatment and to build capacity of health systems to respond to emergencies.
