Uplift International works to improve the health and well being of vulnerable populations, especially women and girls, around the world. We view health through a human rights lens and human rights through a health lens and believe that all people have the right to access scientifically-based health information and safe, affordable health services, including reproductive healthcare.
Uplift International focuses on education, advocacy and interdisciplinary development solutions. We build relationships with professional associations, NGOs, universities, and with health, law, and business professionals. Our work is carried out through collaborative partnerships in order to ensure that the most vulnerable in society are not ignored, but are respected and protected.
