The HealthRise “Global Team” included the Medtronic Foundation, the implementation and managing partners –– Abt Associates (Abt), Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC), Instituto Sírio-Libanês de Ensino e Pesquisa (IEP) –- and the evaluation partner, IHME. Abt oversaw the coordination of the HealthRise program at the global level and managed country-level programs in India and the United States.
