About Us

Engineering World Health is a U.S.-based non-profit organization that engages the skills and passions of students and professionals from around the globe to improve healthcare delivery in low-income countries.

Our volunteer engineers use their unique abilities to install and repair life-saving equipment in resource-poor hospitals, and to train local technicians in order to build sustainable capacity. With programs in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, EWH is building a global network of innovative and thoughtful biomedical professionals determined to build a healthier future for all the world's people.

Our Covid-19 Response: EWH is conducting virtual design programs, bringing together students from around the world. The courses focuses on low-resource design and engineering for healthcare in an international setting. Read more about the courses here.
