DECREASING PREVENTABLE DEATHS THROUGH PROVEN STRATEGIES
Every year, millions of people around the world die from preventable causes. These causes of death, such as tobacco use, road traffic crashes, and limited access to emergency obstetric care, continue to jeopardize the health and well-being of much of the world’s population, despite proven solutions to prevent them.
Bloomberg Philanthropies’ public health program aims to combat these widespread health hazards by spreading proven solutions to protect more people and save more lives. Our Tobacco Control, Road Safety, Maternal Health and Obesity Prevention programs use effective strategies on the local and national levels to improve the quality of life for millions of people worldwide.
In each of our public health initiatives, we form partnerships with the world’s leading organizations to scale up proven interventions, and rigorously analyze data to create significant results. Our Data for Health program works with countries to strengthen birth and death data, so policymakers can analyze and use those data to inform their decisions.
