HVO POLICIES

Health Volunteer Overseas requires that all volunteers demonstrate the highest standards of professional and personal conduct at all times. Sensitivity to cultural and social beliefs and practices of the host country should guide professional and personal behavior.

Along with this requirement, there are some general policy HVO has put in place to ensure our organization and volunteers work in a safe, ethical and productive way. With the approval of our Board of Directors, HVO has adopted the following policies. If you plan to volunteer with HVO or raise funds on our behalf, we urge you to review these policies:
