Thank you, Cummings Foundation!
Your generous “$100K for 100” grant will enable us to better meet the huge demand for modern medical equipment in the countries in which we work, including Haiti. Yours is a gift that will change the lives of tens of thousands of the poorest of the poor, and we are very grateful.

Laying the foundations for global health-care delivery

BHI is attacking the poverty of mean aspirations:
the acceptance of decaying and poorly built health-care infrastructure as inevitable and intolerable.

— Dr. Paul Farmer, Co-founder, Partners in Health

With our partners, we design and build high-quality health-care facilities in under-served and impoverished regions of the world.

We partner only with organizations committed to the public health system to ensure that ...

  • the highest quality care available is provided in a dignified and compassionate manner

  • such care is accessible to all, regardless of ability to pay

  • the facility complements and adds to the national — and global — public health-care infrastructure



BHI's model is unique: We offer hands-on construction know-how with experience working in resource-constrained areas, training community members to staff and maintain facilities, and providing ongoing managerial support.
