[Correspondence] Faith-based organisations and health care: invest, don’t proselytise

I am inspired to see The Lancet, one of the world’s most esteemed research journals, focus its attention on the role of faith-based organisations in delivering health care to vulnerable individuals and communities that mainstream health-care professionals find it difficult to penetrate. We, at the American Jewish World Service are deeply involved in this work, supporting more than 500 local grassroots organisations in some of the poorest countries in the world to fund innovative approaches to tackling HIV/AIDS, Ebola, and other public health challenges as part of our focus in the developing world.
