HealthRight International and the Peter C. Alderman Foundation (PCAF) has announced there merger in order to better meet the mental health needs of the marginalized communities they serve around the world. Integrating PCAF’s considerable experience and expertise in global mental health across Health Right’s existing and future programs will greatly enhance its ability to deliver comprehensive, transformational health solutions.
Executive Director, HealthRight International, Peter Navario said, “We are very excited about joining forces with PCAF not only because they bring invaluable knowledge and experience in providing mental health and psycho social services, but the organization is also a perfect cultural fit in terms of our shared focus on improving the health of the most vulnerable populations through community-driven solutions.”
Liz and Steve Alderman from PCAF added, “We’ve proven the value of treating mental health in the broader context of general health and other determinants of well-being. That’s why it makes so much sense for PCAF to become a part of HealthRight International. Merging with HealthRight will allow us to deliver our evidence-based model of care more efficiently and effectively to more people for many years to come.”
With the addition of the new Peter C. Alderman Program for Global Mental Health, HealthRight becomes one of very few global health non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with the ability to deliver integrated health solutions that address mental health for the most vulnerable populations. Following the merger, HealthRight will support holistic health programming in Burundi, Kenya, Nepal, Uganda, Ukraine, the United States and Vietnam.
