In this team, Daryl is responsible for programmes aimed at strengthening health systems in LMICs through partnerships between GSK, INGOs and country governments. GSK recognises the importance of strong health systems both as a human right and social good, but also as essential for access for essential medicines and vaccines.

More recently, GSK has partnered with Amref Health Africa to improve diagnosis, referral and treatment for malaria, TB and HIV, as well as leveraging the role of technology to improve the quality of training and reporting for health workers.
