HealthBridge

WHO WE ARE 

Mission Statement

HealthBridge works with partners worldwide to improve health and health equity through research, policy and action.

 

How we work

HealthBridge is an international, non-profit, non-governmental organization that has been working since 1982 in Asia, Africa and the Americas.  We aim to improve the health of vulnerable populations, including those at risk of malnutrition, infectious disease and emerging epidemics, such as obesity and non-communicable diseases (NCDs), by bridging the gap between needs and technologies, evidence and policies, and policies and practice.

HealthBridge works with local partners to identify priority issues, develop and implement appropriate solutions, apply innovative and sustainable practices, and promote effective policies.

We promote integration and cross-pollination of programs by addressing the Sustainable Development Goals holistically. For example, we weave a nutrition focus into agriculture interventions and strengthening of health systems. Gender equality is fundamental to health equity and is an underlying principle for all programs.

We have programs in:

Our approach is to work with and strengthen the ability of local partners to carry out the work, which increases the sustainability of our programs. We work with partners to assess the situation and identify locally appropriate solutions that address key gaps.

For example, our work addresses one of the root causes of health and gender inequalities: the undervaluing of women. HealthBridge is one of the few NGOs to positively engage men in women’s reproductive health, providing positive images of masculinity rather than portraying men as the problem.

We also undertake programs outside of the mainstream, for example Livable Cities, and address them in a way that historically few organizations have, by focusing on the link between tobacco and poverty, for instance.

 

Our Partners

Collaboration with partners around the world allows HealthBridge to make a difference, to bridge the health gap between the developing and developed worlds and between the rich and the poor. We work with local country partners to identify priority issues, and to design and implement appropriate solutions, apply innovative and sustainable practices, and promote effective policies.

The success of our work depends on these partnerships, as well as on effective collaboration with international organizations (both government and non-government), community groups, foundations, research institutions and government ministries.

 

HealthBridge in Vietnam
HealthBridge began working in Vietnam in 1993. HealthBridge Vietnam’s projects have addressed issues related to Tobacco Control, Gender, Reproductive Health, HIV & AIDS, Cancer Control, Livable Cities and Nutrition.

Our activities in Vietnam have focused on research for advocacy, innovative approaches to technical assistance, capacity building, creating and strengthening networks and developing resource materials. Through these activities, HealthBridge Vietnam responds to the technical and capacity-building needs of government and local NGOs, providing the resource materials required for their work.
