Physicians For Peace
For more than 25 years, Physicians for Peace has brought health care and medical expertise, coupled with compassion and commitment, to underserved people across the globe. We believe that the capacity to provide sustained, basic health care is essential to transforming lives, and that a peer-to-peer approach to addressing locally identified gaps in training and education is the most effective and sustainable method for success.
At a time when we in the West have so many advantages in medicine and technology, it is more important than ever that we engage with the rest of the world. We can affect positive change if we embrace our common humanity and act to do our part. That’s why our volunteer International Medical Educators donate thousands of hours each year, share invaluable skills, and transform countless lives. We have successfully trained medical providers in more than 60 countries in every corner of the world.
We seek to grow our impact as a partner in the global health community by educating and empowering more local providers of surgical care to alleviate suffering and transform lives in under-resourced communities around the world. The knowledge shared by PFP is then shared with others and continues to grow purposefully and exponentially, supporting our long-time goal: Teach One. Heal Many.
