Global Health

We invest in organizations and local leaders that deliver safe, equitable, and affordable healthcare to overlooked communities.

Improved global health is about more than just equal access to healthcare.

A person's health and wellbeing is often determined by their gender, race, location, and other dimensions of their identity that should not play a role.

At The Patchwork Collective, we take an equity approach to global health and believe that everyone has a fundamental right to health, regardless of where they live and what their race, gender, ethnicity, or sexuality may be. 

Improved global health is more than equal access to healthcare. It’s about identifying the underlying inequities that inhibit individuals and communities from achieving comparable health outcomes, even when access is equal. To truly achieve global health equity, we need to give power back to local communities to design the health and well being solutions they want and need.
