The Abundance Foundation is improving health by treating and preventing disease through medical education and health system strengthening. But we believe that health is more than just the absence of disease; we focus our work at the intersection of both individual and community health. To enable lasting change and support the strength that already exists in communities, the Abundance Foundation is working to build coalitions between partners that create healthy eco-systems and develop the conditions for sustainability. We recognize that it is essential to collaborate with local ministries of health and international NGOs, and believe it is equally important to work hand-in-hand with grassroots groups whose leadership reflects those directly impacted by the problems being addressed. We believe that these collaborative efforts are essential to establishing true resiliency and long-term, sustainable solutions.
