Today's philanthropists struggle to balance crisis contributions with investments in longer term, lasting solutions.  HealthRight International exemplifies a nonprofit that leverages relatively small resources for a significant and sustainable impact in underserved communities around the world. And business investors love it.

Founded in 1990 by the late Jonathan Mann, M.D., HealthRight International builds access to healthcare services for communities that are discriminated against.  People served include survivors of human rights violations, people with HIV/AIDS, TB, and malaria who are stigmatized in their communities, and women, orphans and vulnerable children who are marginalized. As Mila Rosenthal, Executive Director, HealthRight explained to me in a private interview, the organization works throughout the world to "deliver life-saving care and services through partnerships with local organizations, government, and health workers; train and equip local health and social service providers to enable them to deliver care long after our projects are completed; strengthen systems by improving data collection and analysis; and advocate for equal access to care by mobilizing communities, documenting gaps in services, and providing roadmaps to lasting solutions."
