Mission & Vision


GHEP’s mission is to eliminate inequalities in health and education by addressing the social determinants of health and human development. To achieve this mission, GHEP builds coalitions with local communities in the U.S. and across the world to design strategies and program interventions to solve local felt-needs.


We envision a world without inequalities where health and education inequities are no more; a world where all peoples attain their God-given potentials in health and education regardless of race, religion, gender, geography, or socioeconomic status.

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Willing is not enough; we must do.”
(von Goethe)


We are guided by the fundamental beliefs and aspirations that:

  • A world without inequalities is attainable;
  • A world without inequalities hurts no one;
  • A world without inequalities benefits everyone; and
  • We all do better when we all do better (Paul Wellsone)
