Our Mission

The Fund for Global Health is a social profit organization: we are a philanthropic agency seeking improvement in social indicators rather than a monetary profit.  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 that need it most.

What we do

At the Fund for Global Health, we focus particularly on innovation in rural health care and on advocacy around global health issues such as tuberculosis and road safety. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by advocating for increased U.S. funding for effective global health programs.

This 7-month year old boy was brought into a FFGH clinic and diagnosed with moderate to sever dehydration with pneumonia and background PEM (Protein -Energy Malnutrition). After his diagnosis, he was treated free of charge.

3rd visit: Feb 23, 2018

A month later the 7-month year old came into the clinic for a follow-up appointment and a dramatic difference is seen. When he first came in, his family did not think their boy would make it through the night.  Thankfully, they were wrong.

Take action

By working with developing nations to address preventable disease, the U.S. has saved millions of lives and lifted vulnerable people around the world out of poverty. U.S. investments in global health have been instrumental in tackling the most deadly  diseases and reducing preventable deaths. However, there is still more work to be done. We believe we can build on this momentum and accelerate progress by increasing funding for programs with the greatest potential to reduce death and disease. The impacts of these investments are far reaching and have a high return – they improve quality of life for the world’s poorest, increase stability abroad, and bolster our own national and health security at home.
