Americares believes heath is fundamental to all aspects of development. With good health, people can attend school, be productive at work, care for their families and contribute to strong communities. At the 2019 Health at the Center Americares Partner Summit we will explore resilience—how resilient communities recover from disasters, how resilience is key to mental health and how public health depends on resilient environments.
