Building health equity in global communities
Global health matters to everyone, not just those in developing countries or marginalized communities. By working together, we can find solutions to address health issues that go beyond geographic borders and help decrease health inequities around the world, regardless of race, culture, gender or social class.
Our team facilitates and leads health equity education, research and partnership initiatives locally and globally. By building ethical and respectful partnerships, we facilitate the sharing of knowledge, skills and talents to improve the health of people in all communities.
Partnerships enable the sharing of knowledge and expertise so that learning and actions can strengthen health systems and address gaps. The essence of sustainable partnerships hinges upon mutual respect, decision-making, engagement and learning.
Key principles guiding our work:
- Build mutual trust
- Decide objectives together
- Share decision making
- Share responsibility
- Create transparency
- Monitor and evaluate the collaborative work
