Assist International welcomes potential partners to collaborate on their programs. Namely, they are currently pursuing: (1) Funding partners – to help them expand their medical oxygen, tele-mentoring and health technology management programs to new contexts and communities; (2) Academic partners – that may be interested in contributing to the content, facilitation, and/or dissemination of their tele-mentoring programs; and (3) Implementation partners – that are interested in joining forces to co-design and co-implement programs that leverage their respective networks and capabilities to achieve synergistic impact.
