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 vulnurable communities.
