Laying the foundations for global health care

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 will be accessible to all, regardless of ability to pay

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


We have a unique approach, combining 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.
