What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Many people and communities who are marginalized - be that due to their sexuality, income, HIV status, residency, etc - have inadequate access to high-quality health care. Some of the barriers are physical, as for pregnant women living in rural areas far from health centers, while others are not, such as doctors refusing proper treatment to LGBTQ people or sex workers. Health is a human right, and marginalized people deserve access to the healthcare they need. The problem to address is bridging the gaps to make healthcare accessible to these people, in a sustainable and long-lasting manner.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

HIV

In support of UNAIDS’ global 90-90-90 HIV targets, our programs center on comprehensive HIV care: prevention, including pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), testing, antiretroviral therapy (ART) adherence, referrals, case management and social support, advocacy, and mental health care. The groups our programs serve include key populations (KPs) among whom the risk of acquiring HIV is 25–35 times higher. In 2020, KPs and their sexual partners accounted for 65% of global HIV infections. ​

Violence, gender inequity, stigma, and substance use are common drivers of the HIV epidemic. In partnership with communities, we create holistic, integrated programs for HIV prevention, treatment, and wellness that address the structural challenges that impede care.​

Population(s) Served
People with HIV/AIDS
Substance abusers
LGBTQ people
Men and boys

HealthRight’s Peter C. Alderman Program for Global Mental Health (PCAP) has provided mental health and psychosocial services in Eastern and Northern Uganda since 2006. PCAP works to reduce symptoms of depression, post-traumatic stress, and other disorders through psychological, pharmacological, and social therapies. ​

PCAP oversees organizational capacity building as well as client-centered, human-rights-based mental health and psychosocial support programs provided by community health workers and caregivers. ​

In post-conflict countries, less than 10% of people in need have mental health care access. More people in sub-Saharan Africa suffer from mental health issues than HIV/AIDS and TB combined. For example, 25% of Ugandan mothers suffer from perinatal depression.​

Population(s) Served
Immigrants and migrants
Incarcerated people
Victims and oppressed people

HealthRight aims to advance the well-being of marginalized women, children, and adolescents (WCA) through RMNCAH programming in these priority areas: maternal and newborn health, reproductive and sexual rights and health, prevention of gender-based violence, child survival and protection, and gender equality. Global research data indicate that 99% of maternal deaths occur in developing countries, and 80% of child deaths occur in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. ​

Our​ human-rights-based approach seeks to support women and adolescents in marginalized communities through deep relationships with local organizations. We advocate for respect, dignity, and equality in health care systems for marginalized women and children.​

Population(s) Served

Through prevention activities, capacity building, early intervention with at-risk groups, and response to survivors of violence, HealthRight helps communities rebound from and reduce violence. We also provide medical, psychosocial, and mental health services to improve health and well-being, social links, and resiliency of people affected by violence. ​

Health consequences of violence include: ​depression; anxiety; PTSD; HIV; suicide; disabilities; miscarriage; pregnancy complications ​

Using a human-rights-based lens, we partner with communities to address root causes of violence, identify people at risk of violence, and provide social safety nets to survivors of violence. We believe in survivor-centered, trauma-informed, and non-discriminatory program design and care. ​

Population(s) Served
Victims and oppressed people
LGBTQ people
Refugees and displaced people
Internally displaced people
Nomadic people

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

HealthRight International aims to empower marginalized communities live healthy lives. Out goal is to create locally built and owned solutions, greater equitable access to health services and better health outcomes for communities.

HealthRight leverages global resources in collaboration with community partners to address local health challenges and create sustainable solutions.

HealthRight International staff brings technical expertise in the areas of capacity building, research, advocacy and service delivery.

Since 2014, HealthRight and NYU's College of Global Public Health (CGPH) have been working together to advance research, programming and policy on health issues affecting marginalized populations around the world. Drawing from resources across NYU, the affiliation bridges the traditional divide between rigorous public health research and complex program implementation at ground level. The goal of the partnership is to enhance opportunities for each institution to build lasting access to wellness and health services for excluded communities.

Selected Program Highlights:

-HealthRight's Human Rights Clinic has provided more than 5,500 forensic evaluations to over 4,800 survivors of torture and abuse from 130 countries.

-In 2015, a total of 842 adolescents in conflict with the law in Ukraine and 138 of their parents were engaged in the STEPS HIV prevention training.

-Through a grant from the MAC AIDS Fund, HealthRight is implementing a first-of-its-kind demonstration project exploring the effectiveness pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to prevent HIV infections in uninfected MSW in Kenya.

- Maternal and Neonatal Near-Miss Reviews (MNNR) has been implemented in 15 health facilities in Nepal and 122 health workers have been trained on it. With support from the World Health Organization, HealthRight has scaled up services to the district level and is currently conducting implementation research to support national scale-up.

-Through the Service Center for Women and Girls in Kyiv, HIV+ women are provided with outreach, social services, and access to medical care. HealthRight also manages 21 mobile outreach teams in 16 Ukrainian regions to develop services available for GBV survivors.

-Healthright and Medic Mobile launched an innovative supply chain management mobile phone app to monitor essential FP commodities In Kenya. As a result, 13,180 women have received family planning and there have been 123,724 household visits for family planning counseling and contraception.

-In 2015, HealthRight trained 1,172 professionals in child abuse prevention and foster care modules along with organizing 19 training courses and developing 6 additional modules on violence prevention and case management in Vietnam.
