Recognizing the complexity of health, healthcare systems and contexts on a global scale, PEGASUS Institute seeks to improve global health service delivery through the development of collaborative and participatory approaches to health. This includes sharing, researching and encouraging innovative approaches and health delivery models to create positive, sustainable and adaptable improvements in the health status of communities around the world.
We recognize that improving global healthcare services not only includes improving global health treatment and outcomes, but recognizing the importance of prevention and early intervention. To provide quality service and care it is necessary to include diverse, transdisciplinary approaches, ethical interaction and cooperative action to help address global health problems both locally and internationally.
PEGASUS Institute hopes to facilitate the improvement of the quality of care provided globally, by including diverse stakeholders, recognizing a wide range of determinants of health and by providing culturally appropriate strategies and approaches to health. We will interact, and share diverse perspectives, respectfully exploring innovative ideas and concepts on the dynamics of Global Health, learning from each other, critically appraising the social-ecological determinants that impact health worldwide. As we recognize that each healthcare context is unique, creative and adaptive approaches to service delivery are encouraged for enhanced patient, family and community outcomes.
An essential component of providing quality health services includes training, mentorship, mutual capacity-building, networking and knowledge sharing in order to acquire a unique set of competencies, skills and knowledge required to address the complex nature of global health in various contexts. PEGASUS Institute seeks to advance partnerships and linkages in order to cultivate and strengthen the skills and abilities of healthcare providers worldwide.
We work in partnership with physicians, nurses and trainees, policymakers, academics, researchers, students, health-related organizations, community members, and an array of global health experts to innovate and share a variety of resources in order to attain long term, sustainable outcomes that build the local capacity of healthcare professionals, while improving health status and life expectancy in communities.
