Few things are more important for the well-being of people and nations than good health for both young and old. When children are well, they can go to school. When teachers are in good health, they can teach. When doctors are fit, they can heal, educate and prevent illness. However, vulnerable communities around the world need health assistance so their communities can flourish in this way. With the help of people like you, Global Ministries Global Health has provided life-saving interventions to over one million newborns, children, adolescents and adults in vulnerable communities around the world.
As the lead agency for the UMC’s Abundant Health Initiative, Global Ministries’ Global Health unit is dedicated to promoting good health among those at risk by strengthening health systems and building health resilience among some of the world’s most fragile communities. The vision of abundant health for all focuses on efforts to promote physical, emotional and spiritual well-being through community-based programs in the United States and overseas. Global Health programs focus on assisting economically vulnerable communities to protect children and disadvantaged adults from preventable causes of death and disease.
