COVID19’s impact on health systems and its workforce has caused substantial collateral damage worldwide due to disruptions in treatment, over burdening of health systems, and reductions in investments and infrastructure. Like other countries, India adopted a variety of measures to curb the spread of the virus, prevent health care systems from becoming overwhelmed and provide treatment to the critically ill. Alongside supporting government efforts, we responded to the pandemic by undertaking a relevant, innovative and impactful program of research, policy and implementation to find treatment, influence public health activities around awareness, prevention and cure and support communities where we work.
TGI is seeking support for two innovative approaches.
The George Institute for Global Health’s mission is to improve the health of millions of people worldwide especially the disadvantaged populations. We aim to change the traditional ways of treating non-communicable diseases, providing the best evidence to guide critical health decisions, and engaging with decision makers to endorse real change.
Over time unhealthy diets, sedentary lifestyles and demographic transitions have caused diabetes, heart attacks, stroke, kidney failure etc. to become the leading causes of death and disability, accounting for over 70% of preventable deaths globally each year.
The Institute is globally pioneering improved treatments, better care, technologies and services to help address this disease burden. We are generating high-quality evidence to strengthen primary health care systems to tackle infections and chronic conditions, achieve universal health coverage, provide the best care and treatment to women, management of non-communicable diseases and address neglected health conditions. We work with 300,000 people across 20 states and 45 districts.
The research and projects are influencing policy and practice by engaging with the central and state governments, civil society organizations, communities and multilateral organizations like the WHO and the UN.
Current programs include:
An organization working to create healthy, productive landscapes across Australia.
An association that works on resettlement programs for natural calamities and diseases.
An organization that provides education for over 20,000 underprivileged children in India.
