Health Care Volunteers International

Health Care Volunteers International is a registered not for profit organization based in Washington, D.C. with international scope and healthcare related projects in multiple developing countries.


Health Care Volunteers International is a multifaceted international humanitarian organization dedicated to promoting the health and well being of underserved individuals around the globe.

A focus on capacity building and operational excellence are central to the ideology and vision of the organization. This is not only reflected in our direct patient care and educational projects, but perhaps even more importantly in the development of a web based platform of medical resources and tools meant to be shared with other volunteer healthcare and humanitarian organizations providing aid around the globe. It is our belief that the development and standardization of best practices that focus on the highest quality of care, efficiency, cost effectiveness, and optimal delivery will drive better outcomes and expand care to far more individuals in need around the world. There are numerous international humanitarian organizations that work in unique and often challenging, but not surprisingly, very similar settings. Increased cohesion amongst this historically very large but very disparate group will result in economies of scale and the sharing of information and processes that will accrue enormous benefits not only for the organizations themselves but also for those they are dedicated to serving.

Organizational Overview:

In addition to medical, surgical, dental and educational projects in multiple developing countries, Health Care Volunteers International is in the process of creating a web based platform of resources to be used and distributed to other organizations providing health care in the developing world. With a focus on operational excellence and six sigma principle, our goal is to establish a clearinghouse of best practices and processes as well as other tools that will enable organizations to operate more efficiently, at lower cost, and with improved outcomes.

Health Care Volunteers International also operates a Blood Donor Program in Guinea Equatorial under the title of Blood Donors International. Plans for expansion of this program are underway.
