OneWorld Health

OneWorld Health exists to provide quality, affordable quality healthcare to people in need in the developing countries of East Africa and Central America where we serve.

In developing countries, easy-to-treat issues like infection, diarrhea and broken bones can be devastating. Without basic care, these minor setbacks can spiral into major suffering. As a result, parents can’t work, children leave school to join the workforce, the local economy lags and the cycle of poverty continues.

In the places we serve, basic healthcare is never guaranteed, and there are far too many reasons why. Government healthcare systems are overwhelmed and underfunded. Not enough doctors, supplies and medicine. Too many patients who can’t afford treatment. Temporary relief clinics that are, well, temporary. And medical centers that focus solely on specific high-profile diseases.

All of this adds up to a powerful recipe for prolonging poverty.

Our History

Since opening our first sustainable medical center in January 2011, OneWorld Health has now provided care to nearly 150,000 patients in Uganda and Nicaragua. To support our long-term efforts at the project sites, more than 1,600 volunteers have given over 100,000 hours of their time to train our local staff and provide care to people in the communities we serve.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide quality, affordable healthcare to people in need. We have developed a model that provides affordable healthcare to the communities who need it most and does not require ongoing support to keep the doors open.

Our Values

We are driven by the conviction that we’re all created equal in the image of God, but not all of us are treated equally. We believe that where you are born should not determine whether you have the ability to meet basic human needs like healthcare.

OneWorld Health - What We Do

Each OneWorld Health medical center offers a full scope of healthcare services to the community, delivered by trained nationals and offered at a price point that is affordable to the overwhelming majority of the population. Patient fees offset the costs of running the clinic, eventually meeting or exceeding the total monthly operating costs.
