Global Health – One Health
Resilient health systems
Health is a prerequisite for a self-determined life. However, medical care is often inadequate, particularly in developing countries and emerging economies. GIZ supports partner countries in making their health systems more resilient by training health personnel worldwide and promoting effective treatment methods. In 2020 alone, GIZ helped provide nearly 89 million people with better health services.
Global solutions for fair health care
Diseases do not stop at national borders. International commercial and passenger transport, which is growing steadily, brings with it the threat of pandemics. GIZ supports regional organisations in developing cross-border infection protection plans. Mutual learning serves as a basis for controlling and fighting disease outbreaks and for fair health care. International hospital partnerships, in which health personnel from Germany and 58 countries share their expertise, are an example of this.
