Mariana de Araujo Ferraz, the Brazil in-country coordinator for GHAI’s obesity prevention program.

Where do we work?  We’ve just added an interactive map that allows you to explore our activities by country or project.

The map includes our Maternal and Reproductive health work in Tanzania, which culminated in a handover to the regional government this summer.  Here’s a look at our other programs:

Cardiovascular Health

We build support for health and food policy solutions as part of the Resolve to Save Lives initiative.

Civil Registration and Vital Statistics

We provide legal review for Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Data for Health Initiative to improve public health data.

Drowning Prevention

We support the government of Vietnam as they implement proven drowning prevention interventions, and advocate to ensure the sustainability of the interventions once external donor financing comes to an end.

Obesity Prevention

We build support for healthy food policy solutions at the national level.

Preventing Epidemics

We build support for investments in epidemic preparedness as part of the Resolve to Save Lives initiative.

Road Safety

We advance policy change that saves lives on the road.

Vehicle Standards

We are changing the public discussion around safe cars in Colombia through media advocacy and mass communications.
