Save a Life. Change a Life.
At Doctors Worldwide, we believe that good health enables people and communities to define their own future. Without good health, a parent cannot take care of their family, or a child cannot meet their full potential, and communities miss out on a chance to grow and contribute to their collective well being. Access to quality healthcare is not a privilege, it is a human right and we work towards making that a reality for everyone, especially the poorest.
WHAT WE DO
Most of the world’s poor health, diseases and premature deaths are avoidable. Stronger health systems can help achieve better health. We focus on strengthening health systems to ensure healthcare access is sustainable and not dependent on aid.
Between 80 - 90% of a person’s health needs throughout their lifetime will be met through primary healthcare [PHC]. We build and rehabilitate PHC services in the poorest parts of the world to create a long lasting solution to healthcare availability and access.
Local communities and services make upto 90% of the first responders during an emergency providing vital medical aid and relief. We support and strengthen the local community response to avoid creating duplicate systems and waste of resources/funds.
