Laying real foundations for global health-care delivery

BHI is attacking the poverty of mean aspirations:
the acceptance of decaying and poorly built health-care infrastructure as inevitable and tolerable.

— Dr. Paul Farmer, Co-founder, Partners in Health

With our partners, we design and build high-quality health-care facilities in impoverished regions of the world.

We partner with organizations committed to the public health system to ensure that ...

  • the highest quality care available is provided in a dignified and compassionate manner

  • such care is accessible to all, regardless of ability to pay

  • the facility complements and adds to the national — and global — public health-care infrastructure



BHI's model is unique: We offer hands-on construction know-how with experience working in resource-constrained areas, training community members to staff and maintain facilities, and providing ongoing managerial support.
