The conference included the launch of an important new series by leading medical journal, The Lancet, which demonstrates improved health outcomes when faith-based organizations are engaged in delivering local health solutions. This is significant evidence that inter-religious collaboration delivers tangible development results.
The impact of inter-religious action was featured prominently throughout the conference, with presentations by several GHR partners, highlighting the Nigerian Inter-Faith Action Association’s work to eradicate malaria and the life-saving efforts of the Inter-Religious Council of Sierra Leone, which emerged as a crucial player in the fight against Ebola.
GHR staff moderated a session on bringing faith-based development efforts to scale. The conference gave GHR an opportunity to enter conversations with new potential partners who can help us extend the reach and impact of our grant making.
