    Title: Global Strategies for HIV Prevention
    Link: http://www.globalstrategies.org/

    We serve women and children in the most neglected areas of the world who have limited or no access to modern healthcare. We are committed to transforming these communities by reducing maternal and infant mortality and overcoming barriers to the overall health of women and children.

    From 2001 to 2009 Global Strategies for HIV Prevention co-initiated model HIV programs and trainings with implementing partners in the Dominican Republic, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Liberia. Each model was unique to its regional context and addressed needs identified by the field partners. In addition, Global Strategies for HIV Prevention engaged American communities through Hope Walks events to rally support for programs addressing the health and educational needs of orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) in seven different countries.

    Working in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Global Strategies for HIV Prevention began to collaborate with the International Pediatric Outreach Project (IPOP). Founded in 2002 by Theodore Ruel, M.D. and Sadath Sayeed, M.D., J.D., IPOP's mission was to improve the health of children in under-resourced communities across the globe. IPOP had established hospital nursery projects, rehabilitation initiatives, schools health programs and scholarships for healthcare professionals. In many instances, the groups teamed up to care for individual children. This partnership led to a greater understanding of the complex problems that affected our implementing partners.

    In 2013 Global Strategies for HIV Prevention and IPOP merged. Today, as Global Strategies, we work with field partners in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Liberia, India and Zimbabwe. At each project site, we work with communities to develop capacity and infrastructure by addressing education and training opportunities in HIV prevention, neonatal care and rehabilitation for life-threatening injuries and congenital disabilities.
