Welcome to GHEP
Global Health and Education Projects
We are the Global Health and Education Projects, Incorporated–GHEP! We are a fully registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located a few minutes away from Washington, DC., U.S.A. Our mission is to eliminate health disparities by addressing the non-medical factors that influence health outcomes, which are known as the Social Determinants of Health (SDOH). The SDOH are the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. The SDOH are mostly responsible for health disparities and are shaped by the distribution of money, power, and resources. GHEP follows the definition of SDOH by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
You want to eliminate health and education disparities. We design and deliver programs that work. GHEP delivers effective grassroots programs, anchored on community felt-needs, driven by scientific research and data, and guided by the social determinants of health, and life course health development frameworks.
