Palmetto Medical Initiative
Palmetto Medical Initiative is revolutionizing the approach to medical intervention in the developing world by moving beyond relief to achieve long-term improvements in health. In a world where nearly half the population lives on less than $2 per day (Source: UN, 2013), socialized healthcare systems are overcrowded, poorly equipped, and underfunded. PMI is bridging the gap between ineffective, socialized care and unaffordable, private care. Our vision is to see impoverished communities take ownership in a provided sustainable healthcare model so that they may become empowered to bring about long-term change and tangible improvements in quality of life. By creating sustainable medical centers that offer low-cost services, PMI is able to increase accessibility to high-quality healthcare and empower communities for a healthy tomorrow.
