"Global Health Disrupted began in the Amazon jungle. We witnessed small organisations doing amazing work but struggling with effective communication and sustainable strategies and funding. We knew these organizations were vital to the health of their communities, but needed additional support - and that’s where creativity came in.
Good narratives, art and other forms of creative expression connect us to what is human.
They improve local impact, create behaviour change, and have the power to inform a broader audience.
This means that small scale projects can do what they do best."
"There are amazing things happening in global health. We honor the work that has come before and that persists in the global health space. Our goal is to enhance these efforts and encourage new perspectives, while promoting equity through the use of art."
WHAT WE STAND FOR
Global Health Disrupted is an international grassroots movement.
We believe in supporting local leaders, partnering with communities, and taking creative approaches to improve health around the world.
We believe that combining art, science and community will lead to improved health in meaningful and measurable ways.
Today, Global Health Disrupted spans four continents, and our work has been successfully implemented across six continents! Although borders don't define us, we think it's a pretty big accomplishment.
