Global Health Strategies (GHS) is an international organization that raises awareness and provides high-level support for public health challenges facing emerging economies across the globe. Since 2014, GHS has been working in Uttar Pradesh since 2014 to engage civil society, champions, senior editors, technical experts, development partners and prominent networks to highlight the importance of focusing on the health of mothers and children.
GHS has conducted various advocacy activities, roundtable meetings, workshops and field visits to build awareness and action around RMNCH+A and Nutrition issues. It has also developed and disseminated factsheets and case studies to improve stakeholders' understanding of UP's health landscape. GHS also works closely with the Friends of UP Coalition, a group of distinguished citizens united by their commitment to better health for UP's women, adolescents and children.
In 2016, GHS also initiated a "Community Engagement and Leadership Development pilot" in 400 Gram Panchayats in five blocks across five districts of Uttar Pradesh. The pilot aims to mobilize and develop community leadership at the district, block and panchayat level, and build their capacity to establish sustainable monitoring mechanisms for ensuring the greater reach and uptake of health services at the village level.
Alive & Thrive has achieved measurable improvements in infant and young child health through improved breastfeeding and complementary feeding practices in Bangladesh, Ethiopia and Vietnam.
