ASSET NIHR Global Health Research Unit on Health System Strengthening in Sub-Saharan Africa brings together surgeons, obstetricians, midwives, psychiatrists, public health dentists, palliative care and general healthcare specialists to work with social scientists, health economists, information technologists and implementation scientists. We are looking for practical ways, through health system strengthening interventions, to improve the coverage and quality of care. We are working across three care platforms – surgical care, maternal care and integrated primary healthcare for chronic diseases – in four SSA countries (Ethiopia, South Africa, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe). As part of this we are piloting a health systems strengthening intervention to improve detection, referral and care for pregnant women with depression, anxiety and exposure to domestic violence in Cape Town, South Africa.
