While last session we learned about identifying and amplifying community assets, this weekend we learned about a different approach. The Gates Foundation supports organizations in addressing many different health problems, big and small, upstream and downstream. The way they provide their support is strictly through giving money. We discussed what the benefits and drawbacks of such an approach are. Some of the projects we learned about were very inspiring, while we were also left with the question of - what happens to all these initiatives when the funding ends? This was a great lesson on how complex it can be to address health locally and globally.
