Developing Health Globally™

Since 2004, Assist International has been a proud partner of GE Foundation’s Developing Health Globally ™(DHG) program. The aim of DGH is to improve healthcare delivery for some of the world’s most vulnerable populations. The program focuses on simple interventions and works to improve access to healthcare through capacity-building initiatives in 16 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and South Asia. Since its founding, DHG has greatly impacted over 300 health facilities.

Developing Health Globally ™ tackles some of the world’s most difficult global health problems by focusing on four areas: Safe Surgery, Maternal Child Health, Leadership, and Disaster Relief. DHG accomplishes this by bringing together many different partners, including Emory University, Duke University, Vanderbilt University, Columbia University, Engineering World Health, UNICEF, Frog Design, Jhpiego, the Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID), the Harvard School of Public Health.
