Cause of the Week: Global Health

Global Health Week icon Nov. 13-19, 2017

Millions of people do not have access basic healthcare, which makes it difficult to combat preventable illnesses. Supporting global health means improving health and achieving equity in health for all people worldwide. Global health can also strengthen national security, as doctors fight infectious diseases before they reach our shores.

Here's how you can make an impact:

  • $10 protects a child or pregnant woman in Africa from malaria for four years.
  • $520 provides six months of health education and awareness for a refugee community.
  • $750 ships essential medicines to support a population of 5,000 people in a developing nation for three months in the wake of a disaster.

What's your story? Have you or someone you know volunteered with a global health organization? Maybe you have been affected by a global health charity. Share your story to inspire others and raise awareness of the great health care disparity within the global community.
