Goal4 overview 2011 12_3

  1. 1. OverviewThe mission of Goal4.org is to reduce infant and child mortality. Our name comes from the fourth UnitedNations Millennium Development Goal to reduce under-five mortality by two thirds by the year 2015.Goal4’s approach uses information technology to build a connected, educated, engaged, and suppliedcommunity – from medical professionals to mothers – that will work together to target the biggestkillers of children under five. The approach is made up of three strategies.  Empowerment via access to knowledge // We use IT to make critical knowledge accessible to those who need it when they need it. Access to knowledge includes medical and technical training, online reference resources, health information management systems, and both online and offline community building across three groups – families, community health workers, and health practitioners and professionals.  Empowerment via access to supplies // We help local health practitioners get the supplies and services they need to prevent, diagnose and treat the key causes of under-five death.  Health marketing and communications // We conduct campaigns that target the health practitioner community and the public. The campaigns are aimed at building awareness, educating, and engaging each audience to use the available health resources and services.Goal4’s mission is being achieved through six programs:  Electronic Medical Records System & Digital Literacy Training  Connected Community Health Workers  Health Facilities: Support and Equip  Public Sanitation  Online Health Portal  Telemedicine and Remote Consultation and Diagnostics Contact Join us on the journey Piper Gianola Executive Director, goal4.org www.goal4.org PO Box 363 Winters, CA 95694 Email: piper@goal4.org US cell: 408 398-5237 Kenya cell: +254 (0)70 522 5191
