Global Pediatric Alliance seeks to promote grassroots empowerment and improve child and maternal health by providing educational, technical and financial support for community-based health projects in Latin America.
Global Pediatric Alliance (GPA) is a small organization dedicated to reducing preventable maternal and child mortality in Latin America. We are a group of pediatricians, nurses, midwives and others who believe that by providing simple but crucial information to lay health providers such as community midwives and health promoters, as well as more skilled medical providers and communities themselves, we can offer poor, under-served communities the skills to save the lives of many women and children. We are committed to an approach that emphasizes grassroots empowerment, working directly with communities to help them define their needs and their own solutions, and then supporting them with training programs, technical grants and financial assistance. This can include everything from training midwives to funding latrines, to supporting health education through radio spots. We are a small, streamlined group committed to efficiency and sustainability.
