“If you heal someone, you help one person. If you teach someone to heal, you help many.” Dr. Charles E. Horton Sr., founder, Physicians for Peace
Physicians for Peace engages compassionate world citizens to deliver training and support to healthcare teams in underserved regions. We work with local health professionals to introduce skills and fill specific training gaps, while mobilizing targeted equipment and supplies that are plentiful in the U.S. but scarce in the developing world. Regardless of the country or region, our goals are the same: self-sufficiency and better health. We want all people to have an opportunity for a healthy, productive life.
Today, Physicians for Peace has deployed thousands of volunteer healthcare professionals on more than 650 missions in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, the Caribbean, Central America and South America.
