This article was originally published in Clinica
The philanthropic arm of GE Company, the GE Foundation, is to channel $25m into a programme called “Developing Health” that will provide grant funding and employee engagement to selected health centres across the US. Grant recipients will be selected based on criteria that include, but are not limited to, need, community impact, leadership, and willingness to partner with GE volunteers, transparency and accountability. “While the nation wrestles with the tough issues of healthcare reform for the country, the tens of millions of people who don’t have access today can’t wait,” John Rice, GE vice-chairman, said. He said that through the support of selected health centres the programme could make “a real, positive difference”.
