Educating people on wellbeing to improve quality of life and promote human dignity

Poor health often perpetuates the cycle of poverty. Illnesses can lead to increased medical expenses, reduced productivity and loss of income. By addressing health issues, individuals and communities have a better chance of escaping poverty because good health is a cornerstone of human wellbeing. Health interventions lead to better physical, mental and social wellbeing, enabling individuals to lead productive and fulfilling lives.
