Helping social impact brands tell their stories.
THE CLINTON FOUNDATION
TITLE: Global Health Commitments Team Member
IMPACT/GOAL: Supported CGI Members with development of new commitments addressing non-communicable diseases, road safety, lack of access to medicine and creation of sustainable distribution systems in developing countries.
At the 2010 Annual Meeting, the CGI Members I worked directly with lead the following plenary sessions:
Women’s Health and HIV/AIDS
This session will be driven by collaborative discussion among members.
Without good health, women cannot care for themselves or their children and they cannot be productive members of their communities. Yet social, economic, and political challenges render women and girls disproportionately vulnerable to HIV/AIDS. As a follow-up to the “Health and Safety of Girls & Women” breakout, this session will dive more deeply into exploring effective and innovative ways of preventing and treating HIV/AIDS in women and girls.
ACTION NETWORK: PROMOTING SAFE ROADS
This session will be built around an Action Network, a group of CGI members who have been working together throughout the year to coordinate action on this issue.
Every six seconds someone is killed or seriously injured on the world’s roads; 90 percent of these incidents occur in the developing world. Given that there are 1.3 million road deaths each year, this is a global epidemic comparable to malaria or tuberculosis. Through this Action Network, CGI members from across sectors are working to raise awareness of this critical health and development issue and are aligning resources to create supportive and safe roads for people across the globe.
