From big corporations and governments down to you and me, improving global healthcare is everyone’s responsibility.
We live in a world where trade, travel and technology are continually dissolving traditional national borders, making us more connected.
It’s time to think in the same terms of togetherness not only to cure or treat diseases throughout the world, but also to improve the delivery of health care itself.
Our lives have become globalized. And as global citizens, we have a responsibility to contribute to the wellbeing of people who may live at the other end of the world.
Not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because by helping others, we’re also helping ourselves. Health is a global public good.

Global Health Issues Are Not Limited by Geography
One of the biggest misconceptions surrounding health issues is that it’s something that each nation should manage on their own. In reality, though, disease doesn’t always stop at the border.
We live in an era of global travel and intense migration, and that makes room for a new set of challenges and concerns that cannot be ignored. Infectious disease, including those that are currently resistant to standard antibiotics, can spread across all nations.
In order to reduce the risk of spreading disease and having rising levels of infection worldwide, we need to manage global health problems better. And we can do so by providing people in developing countries with better access to drugs and treatment.
Another focus should be creating solutions which allow for intelligent preventive care and improved management of epidemic diseases (such as diabetes and high blood pressure).
In this sense, coming up with innovative ways to use technology plays a pivotal role.
Improving Global Healthcare by Using Technology
Technology is the key to reducing global health disparities and driving sustainable change to the future of healthcare.
Our programs focus on providing innovative solutions to the problems we face when it comes to the global health system, and are built on three main pillars:
- Mobility. Re-engineering access to global health care with mobile solutions to fight against epidemic diseases in both rural and urban areas.
- Scalability. The cost of combating epidemic diseases remain close to constant, regardless of the number of those receiving care, thanks to scalable technology innovation.
- Connectivity. By leveraging connected and social technologies, we can make better use of the knowledge and expertise of the global community.

Take Responsibility, Get Involved
Infectious disease and chronic illnesses affect more than one billion living in poverty. We can change that.
As we enter a new era of global health in which technology plays a crucial role, we can make a significant impact by focusing on improving preventive care and self-care management of diseases in developing countries.
But only if we work together.
Join one of our programs to support our mission to prevent and bring down suffering of epidemic diseases. Every contribution matters.
