Our Global Reach



Since 1986, Health Volunteers Overseas (HVO) has worked to increase global health care access in resource-scarce countries through clinical training and education programs in child health, primary care, trauma and rehabilitation, essential surgical care, oral health, blood disorders and cancer, infectious disease, nursing education and wound management. In resource-poor nations throughout Africa, Asia and Central and South America, HVO volunteers train, mentor and provide critical professional support to local health care providers who care for the neediest populations in the most difficult of circumstances.
