Since 1987, HVO has been committed to improving the quality and availability of health care providers in resource-scarce countries. The support of HVO donors, members, and partners leads to the training of local providers - students, residents, licensed clinicians, technicians, faculty, etc. - as well as the recruitment of expert health care volunteers and the development, maintenance and monitoring of projects around the world. Impact information is based on data provided on post-trip Volunteer Feedback Surveys and annual reports from HVO Project Directors and On-Site Coordinators.
*There were 102 projects open at some point during the 2015 calendar year. As of Dec 31, 2015 this number was 87.
