19 Health-Related Social Enterprises

From Purpose-Driven Workouts to Sharp Socially-Aware Glasses

— July 14, 2011 — Social Good
Initiatives that act as support systems and alternatives to local healthcare are significant as potential sites of possiblity and many of them are health-related social enterprises. Whether the organizations and businesses directly tackle a health issue or rather, offer services that relate to nutrition and exercise, the social and environmental goals convey an aim to reconsider what -- in some countries -- is considered the task of the government.

From the purpose-driven workouts of the Good Gym to Hydros, a social business helping to tackle the global water crisis, these health-related social enterprises range from local to global showing that there's no issue too small -- or too big -- when it comes to the human right of universal healthcare and general mental and physical well-being.
