Health Care

Around the world, poverty and poor health are closely linked. For millions, the causes of poor health are rooted in political, social and economic injustices.

Poverty and low-income status are associated with a variety of adverse health outcomes, including shorter life expectancy, higher rates of infant mortality, and higher death rates.

Poverty is both a cause and a consequence of poor health: poverty increases the chances of poor health and poor health traps communities in poverty.

Very poor and vulnerable people may have to make harsh choices – knowingly putting their health at risk so that they can use their scarce resources to feed their children. 

ImpactHope is committed to finding long-term solutions to impact the health of those living in poverty.
