Sharing best practices and ideas that are tested and proved within, to a client institution for creating a positive impact could be the prime objectives of any mentoring initiative. There are several organizations in the field of health care offering the mentoring Programme at various levels. The models followed by them are mostly developed and established internally, customized to address the needs of their clients to achieve the desired impact.

Lions Aravind Institute of Community Ophthalmology (LAICO) :

Through its various capacity building initiatives had partnered with several eye hospitals in India and other developing countries to enhance their capacity, deliver quality eye care services in a sustainable manner and addressing their community’s eye care need.

IHI is an influential force in health and health care improvement in the US and has a rapidly growing footprint in dozens of other nations

Similarly, SEVA, a global non-profit eye care organization based in the USA and working with a vision to create "A world free of avoidable blindness, constituted the Global Sight Initiative(GSI), an expansive network comprised of 3 collaborating international NGOs, 10 mentor institutions and more than 90 mentee hospitals spanning the world. LAICO (AECS) is one of the early mentors in the GSI network.

There are other successful consulting organizations like Accenture Health, McKinsey, Acumen, W2 in India and abroad who contributes towards improving health care.

Though there are differences in content, methodology and delivery process of mentoring activities, there is Hugh scope for learning from each other through sharing.

This learning will increase the effectiveness of current mentoring activities and multiply the work.
