About The Strada Foundation

The Strada Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, is committed to catalyzing transformative change in global health. We are driven by a passionate team of visionary leaders who recognize that health is the cornerstone of sustainable development and the key to unlocking human potential. Through strategic interventions in vital sectors such as accessible healthcare (SDG 3), quality education (SDG 4), renewable energy options (SDG 7), reliable nourishment (SDG 2), and an inclusive economy (SDG 5), we aim to address the root causes of global health disparities.

Our Mission

Our mission is to eliminate barriers to health and well-being, nurture self-reliance, and unleash the innate potential within every individual. By bridging the gap between global health challenges and sustainable development goals, we empower communities to thrive, fostering a brighter and healthier future for all.

Our Vision

Our vision at The Strada Foundation is to pioneer a world where health knows no boundaries, where every individual, regardless of their background, enjoys equal access to essential healthcare, quality education, sustainable energy, reliable nourishment, and economic opportunity. We envision a planet where global health disparities are replaced with universal well-being, and where communities thrive in harmony with the world around them. Through our relentless commitment to igniting change, we strive to be at the forefront of global health transformation.

Our Approach

Global health is about recognizing that the challenges affecting well-being transcend borders and are not simply isolated to medical care.

Current Initiatives

Innovative Pathways to Health Equity

Bridging Healthcare Gaps in Low-Income Georgia Communities

Program Overview

In pursuit of our mission to empower communities, our health and wellness initiative is dedicated to improving healthcare access and outcomes for underserved populations in select cities across Georgia. We recognize that access to quality healthcare is a fundamental human right, and we are committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to lead a healthy and fulfilling life.

We will collaborate closely with local healthcare providers, community leaders, and residents to tailor our services to the specific needs of each community. Outreach and education are integral parts of our approach, empowering individuals to make informed decisions about their health.

Through our mobile clinics and targeted interventions, we are working to break down barriers, improve healthcare access, and foster a brighter and healthier future for all residents in the selected cities in Georgia.

Components to this initiative

Mobile Clinics for Improved Access

As part of this initiative, we will be deploying mobile clinics in low-income, rural communities within Georgia. These mobile clinics will be equipped to provide essential healthcare services, with a specific focus on addressing highly prevalent diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and hyperlipidemia.

Primary target areas will focus on healthcare deserts and rural Communities with limited health access. 

Rural communities often face significant barriers to accessing healthcare services, including limited transportation options and healthcare facilities. Our mobile clinics will bring healthcare directly to these communities, reducing the distance and financial burden of seeking care.

Early Hypertension Intervention

Hypertension is a widespread and potentially life-threatening condition that disproportionately affects underserved populations. The program will offer hypertension screening, diagnosis, and management, ensuring that individuals receive timely and appropriate care.

By improving access to quality care and addressing chronic conditions like hypertension, we aim to enhance the overall well-being of individuals and communities. Our initiative seeks to empower individuals to take control of their health, ultimately leading to better life outcomes.
