Our integrated approach to disaster management links preparedness, response and recovery activities. Responding to the increased frequency of disasters and global climate change, we also work with communities to build resilience to future disasters.
When disasters hit, we provide relief supplies, financial assistance and technical support to ensure rapid response and recovery.
Our global health initiatives focus on preventing and combating infectious diseases, including measles, malaria and HIV/AIDS, on a large scale. We strive to create sustainable and equitable programs, providing service to the most hard to reach populations.
Through our participation in the Measles Initiative, we have helped to vaccinate more than 600 million children, reducing measles deaths by 74% worldwide from 2001 to 2007 and by a remarkable 89% in Africa.
