Responding to the Deadly California Wildfires

Health is on the Way

Every day, somewhere in the world, our neighbors face hurricanes, floods, disease outbreaks, civil conflict, earthquakes, extreme poverty and other crises.  Their need for health care has never been greater. Read the stories of lives saved and communities healed.  

With good health, anything is possible

For people affected by poverty or disaster, health is essential to a better future. With good health, they can attend school, be productive at work, care for their families and contribute to strong communities. Poor health puts all of those opportunities at risk. Health is fundamental to all aspects of development.
