Global Strategies works hand-in-hand with local community partners across the globe. By combining our expertise with their knowledge of the local landscape and the trust they have developed over decades, we are able to create lasting change.
Birthlink is a United Kingdom non-profit that works in partnership with doctors, nurses and midwives in developing countries to improve the care of mothers and their newborn babies, and reduce maternal and neonatal mortality. Global Strategies works with Birthlink to improve neonatal care in the eastern Congo and to pioneer the introduction of life-saving equipment to help babies with breathing difficulties.
Our partnership with HEAL Africa has spanned more than a decade and has led to the pioneering of maternal-child healthcare in the North Kivu Province of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Together we established the Children's AIDS Program, the only program dedicated to children living with HIV in the eastern Congo. We also founded a neonatal training center and pioneered the introduction of the first neonatal respiratory care program with our partner Birthlink.
Today our programs at HEAL Africa include HIV/AIDS prevention and care, neonatal care and malnutrition.
The Infectious Disease Research Collaboration (IDRC) is a nonprofit organization conducting research in Uganda. It was established in 2008 by Ugandan health scientists from Makerere University College of Health Science, UCSF, and the Ugandan Ministry of Health. Global Strategies and IDRC have collaborated on a study using midwife trainers and NoviGuide, our clinical support software, to rollout neonatal oxygen saturation monitoring in eastern Uganda.
Led by Sister Barbara Brillant, the Mother Patern College of Health Sciences is educating the next generation of Liberian nurses, laboratory technicians and social workers. Global Strategies provides scholarships every year for students to attend the college.
Global Strategies began partnering with Panzi Hospital in 2009 to deliver post-rape healthcare to rape survivors.
The project expanded in 2012 by providing access to 4,000 post-rape health kits, called the Prévention Pack, to survivors in the South Kivu province in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The expanded project includes intensive training with experts in the field of sexual violence and an improved regimen of prescribed medications.
Following that successful collaboration, we partnered together with Birthlink to improve neonatal care and introduce neonatal respiratory therapies at Panzi Hospital. This effort helps Panzi Hospital's team care for over 3000 babies annually.
The Preeclampsia Foundation is a community of patients and experts, with an array of resources and support to help women have the best possible pregnancy. Global Strategies and the Preeclampsia Foundation have created the Aspirin Educator using NoviGuide, our clinical support software, to help women better understand their own risk levels for preeclampsia, as a ‘conversation starter’ to share with their doctors.
