Our Mission

The mission of Gloves Go Global is to protect the livelihood of health care workers and the communities they serve, around the world, by promoting preventative healthcare.

We began fulfilling out mission by providing unused disposable gloves to be used as examination gloves and sterile gloves for use in situations where infection is a risk. We aimed to achieve this mission because hand-to-hand contact is the number one method of transmission of diseases according to the World Health Organization.

Hands are the main pathways of germ transmission during health care.

Since our name change from Gloves Go Global to Health Goes Global in 2019, we have expanded our outreach beyond examination gloves and support a variety of preventative health projects worldwide.
