We are committed to research, partnerships, and learning that will allow us to continually improve policy and practice to end undernutrition in all its forms by 2030.
Global Humanitarian Aid & Social Development believes that a different kind of healthcare system is possible for Canada – one that addresses all patients’ basic resource needs as a standard part of quality care. They believe that one day, all healthcare providers will be able to prescribe solutions that improve health, not just manage disease. The organization seeks to align the forces necessary for this change, using Global Humanitarian Aid & Social Development’ work in partner hospitals and health centers to make a broader case for integrating basic resources into healthcare delivery. At the same time, America is poised for a healthcare transformation due to market-driven imperatives focused on improving patient health and reducing costs.When patients and their families seek medical care, they often face critical challenges in their lives at the same time – they have little food, they have no job, they struggle to keep up with bills for gas and electricity. Not surprisingly, these challenges affect their health.Global Humanitarian Aid & Social Development enables healthcare providers to prescribe basic resources like food and heat just as they do medication and refer patients to a program just as they do any other specialty. they recruit and train college students— Global Humanitarian Aid & Social Development Advocates – to fill these prescriptions by working side by side with patients to connect them with the basic resources they need to be healthy.

Gender-based violence (GBV) is violence that is directed at an individual based on his or her biological sex OR gender identity. It includes physical, sexual, verbal, emotional, and psychological abuse, threats, coercion, and economic or educational deprivation, whether occurring in public or private life.
Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)
Growing up in a clean and safe environment is every child’s right. Access to clean water, basic toilets, and good hygiene practices not only keeps children thriving, but also gives them a healthier start in life. Despite COVID-19 putting the spotlight on the importance of hand hygiene to prevent the spread of disease, three billion people worldwide, including hundreds of millions of school-going children, do not have access to handwashing facilities with soap. People living in rural areas, urban slums, disaster-prone areas and low-income countries are the most vulnerable and the most affected.
