Event description

Faith-based and secular organizations work to provide access to better health for people around the world. But it’s not easy. How do organizations reconcile their differences in order to work together to effectively serve the people most in need? Join us for an honest conversation about the realities and challenges of partnership for faith-based and secular organizations. Successes and failures will be highlighted as we learn from those working on the ground, in faith-based and secular organizations. Congregations and communities with projects around the world are encouraged to attend.

This event is organized by Global Health Nexus, an initiative of the Washington Global Health Alliance and a volunteer committee of leaders from faith-based and secular organizations. This is an official event of the “Next Fifty” at Seattle Center.

  1. Randy, your post does not include a working link for how to RSVP. Can you please provide that info? Thank you!

  2. Faith-based organizations can play a constructive role in furthering the cause of global health, but never with an agenda of promoting a particular faith. This project has a glitzy feel-good website but I am not comfortable with the intentions of some of the participants. I say proceed very cautiously.
