Vision & Mission


Village Health Works (VHW) envisions a healthier, more just, peaceful, and prosperous society in Burundi and beyond. We seek to be an international center of excellence and the premier teaching institution in global health.


Our mission is to provide quality, compassionate health care in a dignified environment while treating the root causes and the social determinants of illness, disease, violence, and neglect in collaboration with those we serve, who share our vision and mission.
