Link Details

Health for All was initially developed by the doctors; staff and patients at the Bridge and Littlebourne Health Centres; Canterbury. Aiming to “preserve health and relieve sickness and suffering in the less developed countries of the world” it supports partnership projects in India and Africa.

Working in Bihar; India; in partnership with People First; a local Indian NGO; successful developments have included bringing nurse and doctor clinics to many villages; supporting health education and immunisation programmes and poverty alleviation through women’s self-help groups. Recent work with UNICEF has led to an opportunity to develop a “model project” for rural health care in Bihar.

Most recently; Health for All has been working in partnership with The Tigray Health Bureau in Ethiopia to support rural health programmes aiming to reduce maternal and child mortality.  Health for All is also active in promoting the idea of “partnership projects” to assist in holistic health improvements in the developing world.
