Our Projects

Partnerships and internships for better health.

VAW Global Health Alliances works with local communities to promote long-term, sustainable development. We support local physicians, dentists, and veterinarians to provide ongoing care in the communities we serve. We co-op with local leaders to implement community projects that advance clean water, nutritional security, health care, oral health care, education, and animal husbandry. Interns work alongside local professionals to support these vital and life supporting initiatives!

Please contact us and we will be happy to discuss any of these projects with you.
