Founded in 2006, VHW’s mission is to build a healthier and more just, peaceful, and prosperous society by providing quality health care (a prerequisite to productive life) in a dignified environment. We seek to be a center of excellence and the premier teaching institution in global health. We believe quality health care must address the root causes and social determinants of disease.
