Who We Are
GreeneWorks Global brings social scientific expertise together with technical know-how to address the social, cultural and behavioral constraints to health and development. Our work incorporates anthropological, demographic, and public health research methods and ecological anthropology to inform policies and programs.
Social identity and culture determine every person’s health and life prospects. Addressing the social and cultural dimensions of health and development is fundamental to the success of policies and programs. Too often, though, programs take a strictly technical approach to health, education, infrastructure, agriculture, and other key sectors, failing to acknowledge or address the social and cultural realities that shape everyday life.
GreeneWorks Global provides a range of services including:
- Applied research on the evidence connecting culture with health and development outcomes;
- Organizational strategy development to incorporate broader thinking about culture and social change into institutional programming;
- Policy analysis to build support for programs and to guide advocacy;
- Program assessment, evaluation and technical support to strengthen programs from concept to completion.
GreeneWorks Global’s understanding of health and development recognizes that the natural world underpins all of social life. The global scale of human-induced environmental change challenges us to expand our concerns about health to encompass the environment.
