Why Health?

Health is fundamental. Take for instance:

  • The equivalent of more than 200 million schoolyears are lost each year in low income countries as a result of ill health, and the impact on learning and cognition is equivalent to a deficit of more than 630 million IQ points
  • When disaster or disease strike down a local health worker, community leader or neighbor, countless lives may be lost that might otherwise have been saved.
  • Every year an estimated 100 million people – that’s
    more than a quarter of a million people every day – are forced into poverty as a result of out-of-pocket health care costs. 

Americares is a health-focused relief and development organization that
responds to people affected by poverty or disaster with life-changing
medicine, medical supplies and health programs. When people are in
crisis, we make sure that health comes first. Our Emergency Programs
help communities prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters. We
provide millions of people around the world Access to Medicine and
supplies. Our Clinical Services deliver quality health care for people
who have none. We create and support sustainable programs that
strengthen Community Health.
