I got involved with Global Health Action because my father was one of their first supporters 40 years ago, and he always said they did more good with less money than any organization he knew. When I was asked to be on the board, I immediately said yes, and have found out that his assessment is even more true today. GHA trains primary health care workers in Haiti, family planning workers in China, and those who work with the millions of Left Behind Children in China. Their mission has evolved as the needs of the world have changed, but there is always a need for the hands on approach GHA has promoted.

Get the word out to many more supporters and broaden the work we are able to do in Haiti.

Global Health Action is a remarkable organization that continues to contribute to health lives and communities around the world. Its flagship program, which has been active in Haiti for decades, is a prime example of the patient and persevering, but also innovative, work that GHA does. GHA has been in Haiti through thick and thin over the years. Importantly, GHA understands the importance of building local capacity, and it has done this over the years at the level of the community and community health workers, as well as that of the health system in Haiti. During the recent earthquake that devastated so much of Haiti, including the region where GHA is working, this organization helped to both relieve the immediate suffering, but also has worked to build anew for the long-term. Its innovative goat husbandry program has made a difference to thousands of Haitians and their families over the years. On the other side of the world, its efforts with health education for women and improving the health and lives of the "left-behind children" are remarkable as well.

Global Health Action is a remarkable organization that has a long history of work in and for many countries around the world. A long-time focus has been the Haiti with China a more recent, but very important addition. GHA is committed to building local capacity of health professionals and to helping them develop more affective approaches to promoting health and preventing disease. GHA also works to develop the capacity of community residents to provide more for their families. A notable example of this is the goat project in Haiti. GHA works quietly and effectively to make real change that is sustainable and transformational.

As a Board member for approximately seven years (including services at the Board Chair, but even before that, over many years (as INSA and then GHA, I have watched the work of GHA closely and even directly participated in some its teaching and other humanitarian efforts. Founded by two very special nurses some 40 years ago, GHA's great strength is in building capacity among health professionals and has done this with great success over that period. Success can be measured in the establishment of an independent parallel effort in India (INSA-India), as well as highly effective, on-the-ground programs in both Haiti and China. The individuals from all over the world who have participated in GHA's programs represent a lasting and transformative legacy, the impact of which is difficult to measure fully. It is, however, huge. Building capacity in health professionals and helping them to think innovatively is not glamorous work in the public eye, but it is the essential work that must be done if measurable, sustainable progress is to be made. GHA, and its committed staff (including Robin Davis as its Executive Director), GHA's Board, and partners around the world, are examples of just what the world needs if global health is to be measurably improved. I give GHA the highest possible rating. There is much more work that needs to be done, but GHA is committed to making a difference. There could nothing better than to help make it grow. It uses resources incredibly well! It is a privilege to be part of, and contribute to, the GHA effort

I sit on a board in the U.S. that has supported GHA's work in Haiti. They submit an annual grant to us for their various work that they provide the poor and malnourished of Haiti This is an organization that follows through on their commitments, is accessible to donors, clients and staff. The impact GHA is making in Haiti is profound.

GHA has a long history of service to Haiti, India and other developing countries. I have served on the Program Committee for many years. I have also been involved in reviewing mini-grants for local development projects. Leadership training has been a key activity, and the approach to training has been state of the art. This non-profit - small and compact - does make a difference.

As an American living in China, I had the opportunity to see GHA's life-changing international work firsthand. Their efforts on behalf of women and children here are remarkable-- particularly their ability to work with local healthcare leaders to create change and results in a challenging culture.

Global Health action is a superior non-profit organization on the ground in Haiti providing multiple programs for a very vulnerable and impoverished population. Through the community health initiatives GHA coordinates, they effectively and consistently strive for and accomplish a positive transformation of many lives. I have had the privilege of partnering with GHA for several years and find the organization to be very professional and well organized.

Global Health Action betters the lives of individuals and families around the world through community health initiatives and a "train the trainer" approach. To combat malnutrition in children in rural areas of Haiti, GHA has provided more than 4,000 pregnant goats to families thus enabling them to become self-sufficient. In fact, after decades of work in Haiti, GHA had the staff and infrastructure in place through its community health workers to provide immediate assistance in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. On the other side of the globe, GHA is educating the children left behind by migrant workers in China's rural provinces about those health issues impacting young people worldwide. Over the past 40 years this organization has leveraged its dedicated staff and limited resources with partners around the world to change the lives of thousands of poor and underserved, especially women and children.

I have closely followed and admired the work of GHA for 20 years and am consistently impressed with how effectively and efficiently GHA applies its resources for optimal impact. Having worked with a number of local and national non-profits, I have the greatest respect for GHA's philosophy of achieving its healthcare goals by training local health leaders in communities around the world. Not only does GHA create a foundation for sustainable health improvements in each country, it is also uniquely positioned to make an immediate difference when a crisis occurs as it did in Haiti. With healthcare workers already in place and part of communities in Haiti, GHA could move quickly to address health issues while others were still organizing. This is just one example of the beauty of the GHA community-based approach to creating positive change in the world.

Global Health Action is a faith based non- profit that reaches the under served communities in many improvised villages and communities unnoticed by others. They provide much needed health care training to local health care workers who then reach out to thousands of local people who lack the very basic health education and this saves many lives. Millions die each year around our world that lack the necessary elements of exsistance....clean water. GHA through local health care worker training makes a difference in improving the daily lives of those they reach. It has been an honor to be associated with this organization for many years and to see what a difference they have made.
