Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being at all ages for everyone.
Good health is essential to sustainable development, and the 2030 Agenda reflects how complex and intertwined the two issue areas are. Over time, there has been quite a bit of progress globally when it comes to health: life expectancy has increased dramatically, infant and maternal mortality rates have declined, and HIV- and malaria-related deaths...
Maternal mortality rates continue to be of concern. Universal access to sexual and reproductive healthcare, including family planning resources, will be necessary to reduce mortality rates. Information and education on the individual level is necessary to help magnify reproductive health into national strategies and programs.
mothers2mothers' mission is to impact the health of mothers by putting them at the heart of improving reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health. Our Mentor Mother Model empowers mothers living with HIV, through education and employment, as role models to help other women and their families access essential services and medical care. Through this Mentor Mother Model, we work with governments, local partners, and communities to: - Eliminate HIV infections in children - Reduce maternal and child mortality - Advance healthy development of newborns and children - Improve the health of women, adolescents, and families - Promote universal access to reproductive health and family planning - Overcome stigma and discrimination - Champion gender equality - Support livelihood development for families and communities.
At Equalize Health, we create medical technology for everyone. We are a global team of designers, engineers, medical professionals, and business minds, working out of India, Kenya, and USA. We are united by our belief that no matter where you live, you should have access to world-class medical treatment. Without health, it is difficult to go to school, to work, or function in society. For people to thrive, they must be healthy. We are proud to have made a significant impact in this area, having treated over one million patients worldwide.
Partners In Health strives to achieve two overarching goals: to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them and to serve as an antidote to despair. We draw on the resources of the world’s leading medical and academic institutions and on the lived experience of the world’s poorest and sickest communities. We are a social justice organization that responds to the moral imperative to provide high-quality health care globally to those who need it most. We strive to ease suffering by providing a comprehensive model of care that includes access to food, transportation, housing, and other key components of healing. We bring the benefits of modern medicine to those who have suffered from the overt and subtle injustices of the world, in the past and in the present. We refuse to accept that any life is worth less than another.
