Legacy is pleased to announce the launch of a new program: the North African Community Health Initiative .  This program, which will take place over two years,  provides community health care professionals from Morocco and Egypt a new set of tools, resources, and knowledge to enhance rural health care services and address some of the pressing needs in their respective communities.

This initiative is designed to have an expansive outreach and lasting impact in rural communities in Morocco and Egypt.  It will build the capacity of public health professionals; offering them new strategies and techniques for  educating women and children in such topics as reproductive health, nutrition, hygiene and sanitation.

Funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational & Cultural Affairs, Legacy has convened six exemplary organizations to collaborate on this initiative: AMIDEASTCarilion Clinic (Virginia), Medical Knowledge Institute (MKI, Netherlands), Soul TV, and FrontlineSMS: Medic.
