Fragmented health systems pose enormous challenges in developing countries. In these contexts, many “subsystems” co-exist and risk pooling is hardest for the most vulnerable: indigenous women living in poverty. Natural disasters create even more pressure for public health systems. This calls for cooperation through public-private-NGO partnerships, where each member provides specialized knowledge, funding or credibility towards the community both to prepare and respond effectively.

This panel will share how AXA is leading a focalized intervention in Chiapas, Mexico. Speakers will discuss how a partnership including two health “subsystems” that is measurable, human-centered and evidence-based can improve newborns’ and mothers’ health.
