In our age of globalisation, health is one of the foremost challenges facing humanity. Fighting disease, advocating for wellbeing, and implementing strategies for good health throughout the world is one of the most important missions’ humanity will undertake this century. With modern medicines, scientific research, communication and technology, international aid and with a collaborative approach to global health, it is fully achievable.
Recent epidemics such as the COVID 19 virus have thrust Global Health into the political and public limelight. The call for integrated and equitable global health has increased because the pandemic transcended national borders and affected the global economy in a way unprecedented for generations. The upheaval caused by COVID 19 has consequently mobilised a call for change amongst many intergovernmental organisations, corporations and across civil society.
Global disease prevention and immunisation, health system strengthening, human nutrition, water and sanitation, animal and environmental health, social damage by international politics, noncommunicable diseases and mental health issues remain key issues, and whilst it may seem overwhelming, individual and collective action can make global change.
Red Sea is fully aligned with the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) and works to place local and global leaders in health. Our work with clients in nutrition, water and sanitation, and disease stems includes placing leaders in Africa for Malaria, to leadership in the Ebola crisis, to nutrition and humanitarian aid. We also work with large philanthropic foundations and corporation’s intent on addressing the global health challenges.
