The day to day needs on the ground, where we provide all of our medical missions remain dramatic. 2021 travel will be contingent upon a COVID-19 vaccine. As we move forward with the medical mission program in 2021, we want to ensure that all team members and international partners are safe. COVID-19 vaccinations will be mandatory for PWH participants.
PWH aims to improve global health conditions by sending medical personnel on missions to developing countries each year. PWH organizes these missions in partnership with local hospitals and clinics, delivering thousands of pounds of medical supplies and equipment to those in need.
Participants provide surgical and primary healthcare services as well as offer skilled training and educational opportunities for nurses, nursing students, CHW, and local residents.
Through these trips, and our Container Program, PWH has established an extensive network of international partnerships. Since 2009, we have held programs in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Cameroon, Colombia, Libya, Peru, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Turkey (Syrian refugees) and Uganda.
Each missions is approximately two weeks long and are open to all medical personnel and non-medical PWH volunteers. PWH handles all travel logistics.
Each team member will participate in a full day of work activities 8-10 hour per day
Activities include: primary care, Project 10,000 education, BP screening and wound care, and more
Students will have the opportunity to work along side a variety of health care professionals and learn about health care delivery in the developing world.
