Health Poverty Action

Mission Statement

Health Poverty Action works with some of the poorest and most marginalised communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America, often in very difficult environments. We work to enable these communities to achieve both immediate and long-term improvements to their health, promoting this as one of their fundamental human rights. At the same time we campaign for the changes in policies and practices needed to create and sustain good health among the world’s poorest people

Program Description

From 2021-2023, under a grant support from the Global Fund, HPA has been supporting the national malaria program and department of centre of disease control in implementing the activities to realize malaria elimination in Lao PDR by 2030. Key objectives include strengthening the malaria community case management at the community level, supply management of malaria commodities to prevent stock-outs, generating evidence through operational research in vector control and surveillance and responses. HPA also works in a close coordination with the other civil society organizations at relevant areas
