We’re in the Philippines!
We are excited to announce a new phase in Allied World Healthcare’s (AWH) development, having signed a flagship with a new client and project to expand within the Philippines!
AWH is also working with a number of world-leading health organizations, spanning government and non-profit, insurance companies and a leading pharmaceutical manufacturer.
As part of the initial phase of work, AWH opened its office in Manila with a second office in Western Visayas, and is growing the team to support Philippines activities as well as technology and operational requirements throughout the region. Since launching in the Philippines, AWH has focused on stakeholder engagement including extensive research to identify gaps in health access; designing and improving local service delivery models and platforms, and working with several partner communities to trial innovative new methods for connecting the last-mile to health support.
Initial support for the project has been receptive and very positive, with a number of local and multilateral organisations already engaged and providing inputs to the ongoing design phase of work.

Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) continue to be the leading cause of death globally, with four out of five people with an NCD living in LMICs. However, there is limited availability of affordable diagnostics for NCDs at the primary care level in many rural populations, making it one of the weakest links in the cascade of care. New innovations are needed to reach these populations with the accessible diagnostics services they need.
