At Doctors Worldwide, we believe that good health enables people and communities to define their own future. Without good health, a parent cannot take care of their family, or a child cannot meet their full potential, and communities miss out on a chance to grow and contribute to their collective well being. Access to quality healthcare is not a privilege, it is a human right and we work towards making that a reality for everyone, especially the poorest.
Our mission is to serve communities in need so that they can build healthier and happier futures. We do this through the provision of sustainable medical relief and health based development programmes worldwide.
We are an independent charity having been funded entirely by public donations. We are not a faith organisation or a political one. However, we do recognise the importance of cultural, religious and universal humanitarian values. By linking medical expertise with cultural knowledge and values, we can build capacity, empower local communities, and produce effective solutions that will leave a lasting legacy long after we have gone.
We believe everyone has the basic human right to good healthcare. Our work would not be possible without donors and committed supporters like you. We aim to share with you regularly where funds have been spent. We realise that sustainability comes by being committed to local communities for the long term. Our cultural approach allows us to understand how things get done locally. We avoid all forms of corruption and ensure donor funds are spent transparently, wisely and with a high level of scrutiny. Our expertise in creative solutions and experience in healthcare means we work towards a low cost and high impact model of delivery.
We are inspired by our faith to serve others, wherever the need is and where we can, irrespective of race or creed. Every single penny entrusted to us is a responsibility that we will fulfil to the very best of our abilities. The knowledge and experience that make us who we are, we share credibly and sincerely. We understand the importance of treating others with respect and dignity, working hard to make sure every interaction with Doctors Worldwide, for our beneficiaries, supporters and staff, reflects that.
We work with others not for our benefit, but to improve care and coordination, with the aim of improving the lives of those we serve. Doctors Worldwide appreciates the immense value of local knowledge, skills and sensitivities, seeking to build and strengthen partnerships with local partners to better deliver meaningful projects and services.
Doctors Worldwide is an organisation led by clinicians. We are subject matter experts in delivering and managing healthcare. This helps us find creative solutions in resource challenged settings, developing low cost high impact interventions, which continue long after we are gone.
