People living in most third world countries too often struggle with extreme poverty and are in dire need of healthcare. From a general lack of wellness education, through the dangers of childbirth and poor nutrition, to a high incidence of chronic diseases, these everyday issues stand in the way of the basic well-being of both children and adults.
World Health Initiatives was founded on the premise that everyone deserves equal access to basic medical care, pledging to make this mission a reality and provide health services to indigenous and underserved communities all around the world.
We began our efforts in South America with the goal to expand globally to not only increase the survival rate of the underserved, but give them the opportunity to live a longer and healthier life that spans future generations. As we work diligently to fulfill the goals of saving lives, WHI is continuing its reach and support to other underserved areas around the world.
Through WHI, we also take steps to expand better heath, wellness & nutrition education to children so they also have equal if not better opportunities to grow up in a safer and healthier environment that gives them a chance to fulfill all the dreams children have growing up.
World Health Initiatives is a Global NGO whose overarching mission is to provide universal health care coupled with the proper education to impoverished communities in developing countries around the world.

Peru lacks the infrastructure and fundamental healthcare plans, education support for its impoverished communities.
Seven out of ten Peruvians live in poverty according to the World Bank, which is one of the reasons the World Health Initiative is currently activated there.
live in poverty.
According to the World Health Bank
Access to health care in areas such as the Andean and Amazon communities is extremely limited by poor road conditions and lack of transportation.
The nearest health center, which provides only basic care, is on average a 4-6 hour walk over rough mountain and terrain and through unsafe jungle environments and the nearest hospital is another few hours by car from there.
Weather, roadblocks, and the lack of availability of transportation can make this journey even more difficult.
The goal of WHI is to establish a sustainable method of health & wellness through education and frequent medical visits to impoverished and indigenous areas.
Our teams will be on the ground helping and tracking improvements to provide more insight to problems faced by these communities and enable us to better support the communities with ongoing education, medical help on site as well as donated supplies and first aid kits developed for each area.
Having community health workers provide quality health and wellness checkups as well as first aid can be the difference between life and death.
Community members and WHI medical units visit these areas on a continuous basis as well as requested educational classes to help face the challenges presented by daily life.
WHI was created to impact the well-being of people’s lives in Peru where we already has an established footprint and have started to educate people in need in over 18 communities and villages throughout the country of Peru.
Indigenous communities in Peru face severe poverty and geographical isolation, making healthcare inaccessible despite financial challenges.
With a focus on wellness education, WHI conducts programs on hygiene and nutrition, targeting over 6 million individuals in Peru who lack basic healthcare.
WHI is actively addressing this issue by bringing healthcare to underserved areas, including Lima, the Andes, and the Amazon, with regular visits from medical teams.
Your donations help WHI provide vital healthcare and education to communities in the Amazon, the Andes, and impoverished areas in Lima, enhancing the quality of life for those in need.
