EquityEditors Association (EEA), a non-profit organization, co-founded by Nyaya Health, is a network of socially conscious medical, scientific, and technical editors, and is currently recruiting new writers and volunteers.
The members of EEA are a group of professional editors who leverage their writing skills to help finance innovative solutions to global health problems. Writers earn personal income by providing writing services, and then put a percentage of that income to work for the world’s poor, by donating (from 1-100% of editing income) to creative, effective, and transparent global health organizations. Through EEA, writers are able to earn an income, improve scientific writing, and help address global health inequalities.
The funds raised by EEA are distributed directly as ongoing funding to EEA beneficiaries — innovative social enterprises that advance global health equity. Currently, the sole beneficiary is Nyaya Health, and EEA has generated over $13,000 to date to fund Nyaya’s work in Nepal. This revenue is an ongoing, sustainable, and flexible source of funding for enterprises such as Nyaya Health. EEA chooses beneficiaries that are transparent, pro-poor, and open-source to ensure that the revenue generated improves the health of marginalized populations. EEA monitors and ensures that each dollar donated is used to advance healthcare in resource-poor settings throughout the world.
