THE STORY:

Better Place International is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to using technology and current innovations in healthcare to leapfrog the traditional norms to establish a better healthcare delivery system in the areas of the world where it is needed most. Women and girls suffer disproportionately from high health risks, education inequality and extreme poverty Sub Saharan Africa. Nowhere is this more true than in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Northern Nigeria and the North Ethiopia which all have grappled with wars, civil strife and droughts. Access to health and health literacy is a critical to improve women health and in empowering them to expect gender equality and share in economic wealth and prosperity.

We anticipate that for each 1000 community members we train, they will positively affect the health and wellbeing of 100,000 women and children within their communities.  This is really the power of Revlon and the power of LOVE making a positive impact on this region of the world.

This fund will help identify, treat and educate woman in the suburbs of Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo to take care of their health as well of the health of their children and extended family by preventing, and if needed, responding to the most common illness in their community such as maternal and fetal mortality during pregnancy, complications during delivery, infant mortality, burns and other household preventable injuries.

With the money raised with this fund we will train 1000 Health Navigators, whom will be empowered within their own community to provide preventive, diagnostic and referral services.  This approach helps create trust, community involvement and a culture of health and knowledge.  This approach also has a lasting and sustainable effect within the community because from the training to the outcomes, it is all managed within the local community.  This approach is different from the typical tactical approach that provides medication, imports independent educators and/or foreign organizations to complete these types of initiatives or programs.

We anticipate that for each 1000 community members we train, they will positively affect the health and wellbeing of 100,000 women and children within their communities.  This is really the power of Revlon and the power of LOVE making a positive impact on this region of the world.
