Extending the Impact of Health Programmes Beyond the Workforce
Private sector organisations share a responsibility to support the communities in which they operate. A powerful way to fulfil this obligation is to invest in community health programmes, collaborate with local health systems and add philanthropic support to local communities.
Community health programmes can help prevent the spread of diseases, improve access to healthcare services, and promote healthy behaviours among local populations which can have positive economic and social benefits. Furthermore, investing in community health can help build goodwill and positive relationships with local communities, which can enhance a company's reputation and brand image.
Beyond this are the valuable expertise and resources private sector organisations bring themselves, strengthening local healthcare systems, upskilling healthcare workers and developing sustainable solutions that address the unique health challenges faced by remote communities around the world.
