  • Who We Are

    Global Initiative for Better Health (GIBH), Inc. is a non-profit founded with a mission to improve maternal and newborn health in Sub-Saharan Africa through improving quality of care in health facilities. GIBH is in the process of launching its first quality improvement project at Gandhi Memorial Hospital (GMH), a referral public hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, that is solely dedicated to serving high risk pregnant women and their newborns. GIBH is committed to creating a sustained and deep engagement while emphasizing local ownership.  GIBH’s goal is to gradually transform GMH into a center of excellence in maternal and newborn health. Its long-term goal is to use the experience gained from this project to help improve quality of care in other hospitals in Ethiopia and other Sub-Saharan African countries.
