Title: Facilitate community driven health initiatives

Challenge Entries

Global access to basic elements of health and well-being remains highly unequal. We seek not only to reduce these health disparities, but also to change the models commonly employed in health development work. With experience in both community organizing and social research, our Board has implemented in El Páramo, Ecuador, a unique model whose core is first providing a short-term injection of time, effort, and resources to address immediate health needs; and second empowering local institutions to advocate for and perpetuate health projects in the medium.- and long-term.
