Health Volunteers Overseas (HVO) is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to improving global health through education.
For the past two decades, HVO has worked to increase health care access in developing countries through clinical training and education programs in child health, primary care, trauma and rehabilitation, essential surgical care, oral health, infectious disease, nursing education, wound care and burn management.
HVO recruits health care professional to volunteer their time and ability to train, mentor and provide critical professional support to health care providers in more than 25 resource-poor nations, covering Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean.
HVO volunteers typically serve at a program site for one month, but there are many sites where one may serve for two weeks. Longer placements are also possible if a volunteer has the time available.
