A new global health plan for a new year

Dynamic Language | January 4, 2011

 

 

In the past decade, Seattle has developed into a center for global health, thanks in large part to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and other members of the Washington Global Health Alliance.

But even Seattle still has communities that lack even the most basic health care. Seattle health organizations are teaming up to bring a new pilot project called “Global to Local” to communities in South King County, specifically SeaTac and Tukwila.

Global to Local will take an approach used in developing countries to serve low-income communities in our own backyard.

In addition to access to health and nutrition, the pilot project will provide help with immigration issues and language needs. Interpretation will be a key aspect of the project, so interpretation in 70 languages will be provided to residents, to make sure everyone understands the care they receive.
