Global Health Ministry

Global Health is one of the four major areas of focus for the ministry of The United Methodist church as we strive to combat killer diseases of poverty such as malaria, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis, as well as provide health education advocacy and infrastructure.  The Central Texas Conference has long been a key player in the fight against malaria through our support of the hospitals, clinics and mission centers which have been operated by the United Methodist Church across Africa for more than 160 years.
