THE STORY:

IGHI (pronounced Iggy), InterProfessional Global Health Initiatives is a grass roots organization that has grown out of a desire to serve and a passion to educate.

Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world and most affected by HIV/AIDS, Malaria and malnutrition with the average lifespan being only about 40 years of age.

Fifty percent of the population lives on less than a dollar a day, and over 1,100,000 are living with HIV/AIDS, with an average of 46,000 deaths annually due to the disease resulting in over 770,000 children orphaned between the ages of 0 and 17 (UNAIDS, 2012).

• > 90% of all malaria deaths occur in sub-Saharan Africa.
• > 1 million people die each year from malaria.
• every 30 seconds a child dies from malaria.

Our unique InterProfessional Global Health Education and Collaboration Model focuses on decreasing health disparities in Malawi, by increasing global health advocacy and access to evidence based healthcare.

Through a collaboration of IGHI's InterProfessional Healthcare Education and Practice; Dr. Peter Maseko and his daughter Dr. Anne Alaniz efforts, as well as Global Health Innovations and the unified vision for Pothawira Clinic will be supported and Malawians will have improved health outcomes; living healthier, safer and longer lives.

Ultimately these efforts toward increasing local access to healthcare and resources, will directly aid in decreasing the significant morbidity and mortality seen in the region daily.

The vision is clear and the need is great!

With malice toward none; with charity for all.
