Global Health | U.S. Health Programs

In the United States, Global Ministries’ health programs promote and provide resources for the establishment of health ministries in local congregations, especially through a network of faith-community nurses and health advocates. The work focuses on risk factors, such as poor diet, substance abuse, inactivity and stress, which are responsible for many diseases, including heart problems, diabetes, cancer and pulmonary illness. The U.S. health ministry provides resources and support for persons with disabilities and persons who are deaf or hard of hearing. The program also supports grants for capacity building and training for health ministries, as well as supporting the start-up or expansion of congregational health ministries.
