Welcome to Blue Gate Initiative

Blue Gate Public Health Promotion Initiative (Blue-Gate Initiative) is a Non-Governmental Organization that was inaugurated in 2010 (Incorporated in 2016)

Vision

Blue Gate Initiative was established with the sole responsibility to positively influence the health behaviour of individuals and communities as well as the living and working conditions that influence their health.


Mission

Our mission is to identify possible ways to promote public health through program implementation, support practitioners in project development and evaluation, and dissemination of project information and findings.


Our Approach to Health

Blue-Gate Initiative takes a broad approach to health as being a "state of complete physical, mental and social well-being". In our view, public health is not just the responsibility of the health sector, but encompasses all sectors who work to enhance the fundamental prerequisites for health-equity, shelter, education, food, and income. Our approaches to health include Advocacy, Health education, Psychosocial support, Empowerment and capacity building, Right to health, Mental wellbeing, Creation of supportive environment, Social mobilization, Medical support, Policy development, Environmental management and Research
