The Global Wellness Institute (GWI) is engaged in a variety of projects designed to educate and inform the public and private sectors about wellness. A hallmark of the GWI is making all of the valuable information and resources available at no cost which allows anyone, anywhere to access the free education. Donations to the GWI make this possible.  

Research is a core focus, as are initiatives, roundtables and the educational website,

Each year, the GWI commissions a comprehensive research project that results in the publication of a major report on a topic of relevance and importance to the field. Initiatives are led by passionate volunteers from different parts of the globe, who dedicate their time to make significant progress in an important area of relevance for the Global Wellness Economy. Roundtables are hosted across the world, where thought leaders from different sectors come together to explore the future. Lastly, is the world’s first portal designed to help people explore medical evidence for the most common wellness therapies, and is an invaluable resource for consumers, professionals and the media.  
We welcome donations of any amount to help further the cause. 

Becoming an Ambassador:
Those who partner with us by making an annual contribution of at least $1,000 per year will receive a valuable monthly resource as a thank you. The GWI has partnered with economist Thierry Malleret, previously with the World Economic Forum, who writes The Monthly Barometer for high net worth individuals throughout the world. We have commissioned him to prepare a special version of The Monthly Barometer for the GWI that discusses his important global economic insights as they relate to the wellness economy. The Monthly Barometer: Wellness Edition is sent to ambassadors of the GWI exclusively at the beginning of each month.
