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 a virtual design program, bringing together students from the U.S. and Lebanon. The course focuses on low-resource design and engineering for healthcare in an international setting. Read more about the course here.
The program is supported by the Stevens Initiative, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, with funding provided by the U.S. Government, and is administered by the Aspen Institute. The Stevens Initiative is also supported by the Bezos Family Foundation and the governments of Morocco and the United Arab Emirates.
