Obesity, malnutrition, HIV, malaria, tuberculosis, and other health issues transcend borders and afflict communities around the world. Global public health is focused on addressing these pressing issues by preventing diseases, prolonging life, and promoting healthy behaviors.
Whether viewed as a public duty or enlightened self-interest, investments in public health lead to improvements in physical, mental, and social well-being. Yet progress requires organized efforts and informed choices by public and private sector groups at the global, local community, and individual levels. It also requires understanding multiple individual and institutional realities and, ultimately, careful coordination to translate aspirations into programs.
Tapestry’s Global Public Health initiative engages public and private sector leaders to address the significant societal, economic, and cultural hurdles that impede effective design and implementation of solutions to critical public health issues.
Currently, Tapestry is developing a country-centered network of key institutions to transform global aspirations for eliminating HIV and delivering quality healthcare to all mothers into local realities. We’re bringing together national leaders from countries receiving aid, bilateral donors, global health initiatives, non-governmental organizations, community-based organizations, and the private sector to build upon early progress in pediatric HIV elimination in order to improve maternal and child healthcare.
