Global Health

Donor funds, when supporting the right efforts, can transform people’s lives and communities. The issues we focus on in this year’s High Impact Giving Guide are among the most challenging facing society, but the programs and organizations we profile demonstrate daily that positive impact can be created.

While our first two sections are focused on U.S. organizations, global health is one of the areas where needs are urgent and high impact is possible. Here we feature two different organizations identified in our guidance, Community-Based Approaches to Health. While distinct in their own right, both organizations deliver care to communities that are isolated due to physical distance, cultural discrimination, or extreme poverty.
