Our Mission

Our mission is to inspire, educate, and empower the biomedical engineering community to improve health care delivery around the world.

Engineering World Health:

  • Provides students from around the world with the life-changing educational experience of repairing vital medical equipment in the world’s most resource-poor communities.
  • In collaboration with local partners in Asia, Africa and Latin America, EWH creates locally-sustainable training programs for biomedical engineering technicians (BMETs).
  • Engages the next generation of engineers through educational biomedical engineering kits, university chapters, and design activities to improve global health.

We believe we have a responsibility to stay true to these values:

  • Ensuring a scientifically-based and creative educational experience.
  • Leaving the communities in which we work with greater capacity than we found them.
  • Empowering the biomedical community through intercultural exchange.
  • Finding workable solutions through innovation and creativity.
  • Serving while partnering with local educators, hospitals and clinics.
  • Promoting self-reliance and capacity building.
  • Providing challenge without compromising safety.
  • Cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity, inclusion and equity.
