Our Mission

The Fund for Global Health is a social profit organization. We are a philanthropic agency seeking improvement in social indicators rather than monetary profit, but we take a business-like approach, working to achieve the greatest possible impact per dollar invested. In short, our driving mission is to provide the maximum possible health benefit to vulnerable communities.


What We Do

At the Fund for Global Health, we focus particularly on innovation in delivering rural health care and on advocacy around global health issues such as tuberculosis, primary health care, and road safety.
