Health is the ability of individuals or communities to adapt and self-manage when facing physical, mental or social changes. However, in a broader sense, it can be defined as a state of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
Our Blueprints collection on Health and Wellbeing are projects that incentivise and mobilise people around the globe around health issues, from setting up community-driven blood donations to widening the accessibility to healthcare support.
#Blood4all raises awareness on the importance of voluntary blood donations, by coordinating community-driven blood donations around the world.
