Children and Families
There is much work to be done to ensure that every child has a bright future. Health philanthropy is interested in a broad array of issues affecting the health and wellness of children and their families, from the perinatal period to early childhood, through the school-aged years, and on into adulthood. GIH designs programming that highlights the unmet needs of children and families as well as philanthropic strategies to address those needs.
Contact Rana Suliman for more information about our programming in this area.
