Description

To launch the Global Health Initiative, the church is exploring a major education and fund-raising campaign to focus on one of these diseases: malaria. This effort will strengthen our existing in-country clinics and hospitals and assist in the prevention and treatment of malaria in developing nations.In the long term, the United Methodist campaign to conquer malaria will create a powerful foundation that will build a stronger and more broad-based community health infrastructure to help the Global Health Initiative in the fight against other diseases of poverty such as HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis.


Company description
The time and opportunity have come for us to look forward to our next movement, a project that will bring the people of The United Methodist Church together to champion global health and change the world for those living in dire poverty. In many places around the world, malaria, AIDS and tuberculosis are medically interconnected. As one disease is addressed, the others are affected. For example, as we strive to prevent malaria, a killer disease of poverty, we open the door to tackling larger issues in global health.In response, The United Methodist Church is launching the Global Health Initiative to focus and mobilize the people of The United Methodist Church into action against the diseases of poverty.
At a point of great and historic opportunity, we are working with the United Nations Foundation (U.N. Foundation) and others to develop a partnership that will bring our existing health programs to a new level.In Washington, D.C., on Dec. 18, 2006, The United Methodist Church and its leaders from around the world convened a Global Health Summit in partnership with the U.N.
Foundation. The Summit sparked enthusiasm among religious leaders and dedicated lay people who subsequently committed to an enlarged and renewed focus on global health.
