Storytelling @USAIDGH with Global Health Month+ More Imperative Place grassroots voices at the center of the narrative and the procedures and processes to determine and then articulate new goals. We must engage in a conversation with the people we serve, and empower citizens to use their voice on finding success and economic opportunity; and do so in a way that uncovers stories of hardship, hard work and hardearned gains Get off the sideline and stimulate discourse; identify and engage communityfocused organizations, potential innovators, bloggers Change the narrative Our narrative must evolve as well to value people and human rights; we must demonstrate collective solidarity, and a commitment to the people we try to serve. Peril of the single story; robs people of dignity Unleash social change ‘Aid' is only of value when it supports the struggles of the many to unleash social change, making communities more adaptive and resilient in the process. Communications can influence policy, amplify local leaders, enable social activism, hold Governments accountable @USAID Health History USAID is celebrating five decades of success in global health. We are grateful for the role all of our implementing partners have played in these successes. For this reason, we would be honored if you would help compile USAID's health legacy to date.
