Global Health Disrupted collaborates with art and health organizations, and stakeholders, from all over the world. We strive to bridge the gap between art and science in a sustainable and meaningful way. Below are some of our current projects that showcase how powerful this connection can be.
Hospital Rooms is a GHD collaborator that aims to provide high-quality art to mental health institutions. The goal is to transform environments where access to art and culture is limited, by integrating museum quality art on the ward. We help with research and evaluation of the project's impact.
INTERNATIONAL QUIT SODA DAY (IQSD)
This annual project engages with youth and community to provide education on the health impacts of sugar sweetened beverage consumption, while advocating for healthier choices through the use of pop art and youth culture. IQSD engages with young people through school assemblies, art activities, and community based events, which are centered around the production of art with a message.
LA NAPOULE ART FOUNDATION
La Napoule Art Foundation is a GHD partner which nurtures artistic talent through residencies and community outreach, fostering the creative process as a catalyst to advance intercultural understanding. We support the evaluation of important community projects, such as the Denver Schools project that establishes role models through the arts for children in government schools.
MAMA: MATERNAL AID FOR MOTHERS AFRICA
We support MAMA, a Kenyan-based NGO which aims to improve maternal and child health outcomes. MAMA provides sustainable, interactive interventions that use a participatory approach to engage communities in rural Western Kenya. GHD provides mentorship, and is supporting the co-creation of a film about the importance of maternal healthcare.
MUSIC IN THE JUNGLE
Music in the Jungle is an initiative using arts-based workshops to strengthen communities and deliver lessons on health topics in a fun and memorable way in the Lower Napo and Amazon River, Peru. We are partnering with Project Iquitos, who provide fun and dynamic cultural activities for children in schools in and around Iquitos.
MENTAL HEALTH SERIES
To support our network, GHD decided to launch an open mental health blog series that highlights the experiences of young professionals in the field. We’ve committed to unrelenting honesty to open a space for people to share, connect and heal through their stories and that of others.
