Where We Work

Even seemingly small improvements can make a big difference, and health workers are deeply grateful for them.
Consider Nahid Imtiyaz, a health worker in the village of Barouli in India. She is one of over 800,000 health workers in India known as ASHAs, each serving a village of roughly 1,000 people.
Thanks to philanthropic support, IntraHealth designed mSakhi, a mobile phone application that gives ASHAs quick and easy access to the information they need to counsel and care for pregnant women before, during, and after childbirth.
"I am thankful," Nahid says, "as now with mSakhi in my mobile, I can access information anywhere, anytime."
You can put this kind of power into the hands of health workers by making a donation to IntraHealth, which is committed to ensuring that health workers are present, ready, connected, and safe. This way, they can focus on saving and improving lives in their communities around the world.
For more than 30 years, we have worked in almost 100 countries to foster local solutions to health care challenges. Just last year, in 36 countries, we made family planning accessible to nearly 28,000 people and helped over 900,000 individuals get tested for HIV.
But we want to double our impact by 2015. And there’s still much work to be done.
Nearly 1 billion people around the world have no access to health workers. Our More in Four campaign aims to help solve the global shortage of 4 million health workers, particularly in countries that are now facing the most severe health crises. For too many people, child mortality, poor maternal health, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria are grim facts of life. You can help change their prognoses by making a generous donation to IntraHealth.
Your support will help us provide the training and education health workers need—and help get them to the places that need them the most. Together, we can connect health workers to technology, information, and human networks. And we can help protect health workers from the harsh environments, deadly diseases, and armed conflicts that endanger their own lives.
