Building bridges for health


In a time of unsurpassed medical advances, gaps in the health outcomes of rich and poor nations continue to widen. Knowledge generated through research and experience is insufficiently translated into policy; innovative drugs and technologies remain out of reach of those most in need. If we are to begin crossing these divides we need to build bridges.

Gephyra International Health Consultancy (Gephyra = bridge) is a young, energetic consultancy company that seeks to assist researchers, development agencies, policy makers and those on the ground in bringing effective, affordable and equitable health care to people in low- and middle-income countries.


Differences, within and between countries, in income levels, opportunities and health status are greater today than at any time in recent history.
