Global Health

Together with global health organizations, BCG is working to ensure that all people—regardless of gender, race, education, socioeconomic status, or geographical location—have an equal opportunity to lead healthy and productive lives.

Whether combatting the HIV epidemic in South Africa, advancing health equity in India, or facilitating the development of life-saving medicines for low- and middle-income countries, BCG works to bring innovative solutions to the people who need it most.

We partner with governments, international health organizations, foundations, and healthcare companies to drive and enable equitable and high-quality health for all.

Our Approach to Global Health Consulting

Achieving health equity is no longer just a human rights issue, it’s become a business imperative too. Both public and private sector organizations today face growing pressure from investors, civil society, healthcare providers, and patients to address health equity; those that do can leverage the opportunity to unlock commercial advantage and value. At BCG, we are focused on driving health equity around the globe. We have teams working on the ground all over the world to reduce disease, improve global health, and save lives.

Our global health consulting team helps clients build capabilities in many areas, including the following:

  • Organization Strategy. Improving operational efficiency to leverage existing resources.
  • Program Design. Creating programs in countries—as well as at the HQ level—in order to achieve targeted health objectives.
  • Emergency Prevention/Preparedness and Humanitarian Response. Developing sustainable strategies to prepare for unexpected emergencies as well as delivering care to the most vulnerable populations.
  • Pandemic Response. Addressing the economic impact of pandemics and extending public health initiatives to support the UN SDGs.
  • Digital Health Innovations and Emerging Technologies. Identifying, deploying, and scaling innovations to achieve health objectives.

We believe that, to improve health equity and speed progress toward the UN’s health-related Sustainable Development Goals, the global health community needs an approach built on collaboration and innovation. For decades, we have forged enduring relationships with leading global health organizations, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Gavi, the Global Fund, the World Bank Group, the World Health Organization, Welcome Trust, and Unitaid, in addition to governments around the world. BCG often serves as a link that connects multiple, disparate efforts to build a powerful response to global health issues.
