“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver” – Mahatma Gandhi.

According to WHO, more than 13 million deaths worldwide each year result from environmental causes, including climate crisis. 

While the pandemic showed us the strength of science, it also highlighted the weaknesses of health equity globally. The inequitable distribution of income, wealth, and power has many people living in poverty and instability. 

Supporting and incentivizing individuals and communities to make healthy choices are nonprofit organizations.

Goodera has enlisted nonprofits working to ensure universal health coverage today for a better and sustainable tomorrow.
