Our Mission

We inspire, educate, and empower the biomedical engineering community to improve health care delivery in the developing 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.

EWH believes 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.
