About Global Health Initiatives
Global Health Initiatives (GHI) is on a mission to improve lives around the globe by providing high quality health care and collaborating with local partners to strengthen health systems in developing countries. Strong local partners are a key to our success as health care is most effective when carried out in a sustainable, culturally-sensitive way by members and institutions of the local community.
A large part of our work is accomplished through short-term medical missions which provides free surgical, primary care and health education programs. Teams of health care providers and administrators travel to our partner facilities in order provide these services.
GHI’s role is to ultimately strengthen our local partners to better serve their own communities. We do this by assessing community health and partner facility needs, and developing interventions that increases local capacity to promote health. This is accomplished through health prevention and education activities, direct clinical care, sharing of material resources, partnering with local organizations, and teaching and mentoring clinical and non-clinical providers and administrators.
