Creating a sustainable impact on the health of low-income communities.
For over 40 years, Novartis Foundation initiatives have helped improve the health of low-income populations. We aim to drive tangible population health impact by becoming a trusted foundation and partner for patients, organizations and governments by building partnerships to improve population health and narrow health inequities, through accelerating health and care innovation where needed most.

How we work
Our journey has taken us from implementing health, education and agriculture projects in rural remote Africa, to pioneering digital health and innovative strategies for disease elimination, and driving multisector partnerships to rethink cardiovascular health and care in urban settings. The power of data, digital and AI has underpinned all of our recent work.
... and why
Today, we focus on the world’s most pressing health challenges: cardiovascular disease and health inequity. We take a population health approach, deploying data, digital and AI-led solutions that can transform health systems from being reactive to proactive, predictive and preventive.
To influence population health policies and actions, we organize our programs under two key pillars – CARDIO4Cities and AI4HealthyCities Health Equity Network. Both are underpinned by our global data collaborative for cardiovascular population health and regional HealthTech Hubs.
Seeking candidates mainly in
We help partners develop innovative solutions that tap into the newest technologies. We convene multi-sector stakeholders to deliver impactful population health interventions. By drawing together partners from inside and outside the traditional health sector, we create powerful collaborations to improve population health. We work with governments and other stakeholders to co-create locally owned, data-driven initiatives that address the health needs of underserved populations.
