Step up for global health
Why we need your help
Around the world two billion people lack reliable access to essential medicine. This access gap disproportionately affects low-and middle-income countries. One of the barriers to healthcare is often the distances people must travel to reach healthcare facilities, and the risk that when a patient does get there, that they won’t have the medicines needed.
International Health Partners works to equip health facilities in low- and middle-income countries, to ensure that even when people have travelled long distances, they can receive the medical care they need, when they need it.
We’re challenging you to walk 10,000 steps or more every day throughout July, to raise vital funds and awareness for the millions of people living without reliable access to medicine around the world.
What is the challenge and how to get involved?
Get sponsored for every step and walk alongside those living without reliable access to healthcare.
