Global Communities works to increase vulnerable households’ access to healthcare and social services. We strengthen local institutions to provide better care that prevents and treats illness while mobilizing communities to take integrated approaches that address economic, social and infrastructure development.
Global Communities promotes effective HIV prevention and increases access to care, treatment and support services for people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS. We improve the capacity of local organizations and communities to combat infectious diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis. Global Communities supports sustainable livelihood-based approaches that help vulnerable families increase their income, improve their nutrition and afford medical care.
Global Communities takes a comprehensive approach to WASH by coupling infrastructure development, community mobilization and behavior change communication to improve sanitation and hygiene practices. We work closely with local governments and communities to address the full life-cycle costs and risks associated with water and sanitation investments and water quality monitoring. Strong local partnerships ensure the long-term sustainability of solutions that are equitable, environmentally friendly and well-suited to the specific needs of each community.
