Small Changes With Big Impact
The University of Washington Center for Integrated Health of Women, Adolescents, and Children (Global WACh) aims to contribute to scientific discoveries, nurture leaders, and foster collaborative approaches to improving the health and well-being of women, adolescents, and children. As part of this commitment, Global WACh supports Small Change Awards that empower local front-line care providers to identify targets for clinical improvement, compete for support, and advocate for their patients. Small Change awards improve the patient experience in limited and middle income countries by improving clinical care, patient satisfaction, workforce empowerment, and health service delivery for programs benefiting the health of women, adolescents and children.
Small gifts to the Small Change Award Fund make a big impact.
100% of your gift to the Small Change Awards Fund goes to supporting UW partner sites. Applicants fill out a short, detailed form describing an idea for a small change that can positively impact the patient experience at their site. Applications are reviewed by a panel and the highest quality ideas demonstrating tangible change are chosen.
Small Change Awards are funded by donors like you. Make a gift today through UW or the Combined Fund Drive (Charity 1481904). For donors wishing to make larger gifts, Global WACh will work with the donor to create special awards focused on specific goals. Please contact Kate Pfizenmaier, Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on creating a special award.
