Health Portfolio

Health is at the very core of much of the world’s poverty and suffering. Deadly diseases like AIDS and malaria are absolutely devastating in many areas, leaving parents without children, and many orphans who must fend for themselves. ADRA is lowering the incidence of horrific diseases like these by teaching methods of prevention.

In addressing the most basic health care problems in the developing world, ADRA’s primary health care activities benefit women and children. Health programs are designed in response to local indicators of health, including infant mortality rates, under-5 mortality rates, maternal mortality rates, evaluation of populations with access to health services/safe water/sanitation, immunization rates, percent of malnutrition, and average life expectancy rates. Most often, health programs focus on activities such as improving access to clean, potable water, sanitation systems, immunizations, and nutritional intake.
