At Health Poverty Action we don’t pick the easiest road, we pick the one that will make the biggest difference to people’s lives. We work alongside ignored communities worldwide who refuse to accept the injustices that deny people a healthy life. We tackle the root causes of inequality, through strengthening health systems, exposing global injustices and advocating for change.

We are grateful to every person who chooses to run and raise money for us. Your contributions have a huge impact on our ability to continue supporting communities.
