OneWorld Health provides quality, affordable healthcare to people in need. We are revolutionizing the approach to medical intervention in the developing world by moving beyond relief to achieve long-term improvements in health. In a world where nearly half the population lives on less than $2 per day (Source: UN, 2016), socialized healthcare systems are overcrowded, poorly equipped and underfunded. By creating sustainable medical centers that offer low-cost services, OneWorld Health is increasing accessibility to high-quality healthcare and empowering communities for a healthy tomorrow.
