Newly renamed PAHO Foundation will channel philanthropic support for health in the Americas
A new “PAHO Foundation” announced today that it will mobilize resources for improving health in the Americas, in alignment with the Pan American Health Organization’s strategic priorities. The philanthropic organization, based in Washington, D.C., was formerly named PAHEF and was created to “combat disease, lengthen life, improve health care, foster research, and train health care workers in the region of the Americas.”
From today, the Foundation will focus on helping PAHO improve health coverage, reduce the toll from noncommunicable diseases, combat vector-borne and vaccine-preventable diseases, and fight women’s cancers, among others. An additional priority will be mobilizing resources to eliminate cholera from Haiti.
