WHY PREVENTABLE DISEASE?
Preventable diseases have devastating health, social, and economic consequences. The COVID-19 pandemic revealed to every nation the need to strengthen health system preparedness and capacity, but this is especially critical in low-income countries where those living in poverty can’t access or afford health services. Many of the diseases plaguing communities can be combated with preventative services like immunizations, basic medications, and mosquito prevention. Supporting projects that expand access to healthcare, educate individuals on preventative measures, and improve the quality of care can significantly reduce the contraction, transmission, and fatality rates of preventable diseases.

- 1 in 5 children globally do not have access to essential immunizations, with 18 million children, primarily located in low and middle-income countries, not receiving any vaccines in 2021.
- Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading cause of death for the 38 million people who are living with HIV.
- 1.7 billion of the world’s population are in need of prevention or treatment activities for at least one neglected tropical disease.

One Day’s Wages comes alongside grassroots partners to treat patients, train healthcare workers, and educate communities about disease prevention. Since 2009, we have supported 17 preventable disease projects in under-resourced communities, impacting over 346,000 people.
