Promoting Health and Wholeness
Because we care about the well being of all people, health is a major focus of the work of The United Methodist Church. Together, we combat diseases of poverty such as malaria, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis; we provide health education, advocacy and infrastructure; and we continue our more than 160-year history of being a key provider of healthcare through the hospitals, clinics and mission centers we have operated across Africa. Now the church has a goal to reach 1 million children with lifesaving and health-promoting measures by 2020.
