Seed Global Health


About Seed

Seed Global Health cultivates the next generation of health professionals by allying medical and nursing volunteers with their peers in resource-limited settings. Seed Global Health volunteers commit one year of service collaborating with local educators to enhance education and increase provider capacity where it's most needed.  Volunteers also provide direct medical care, strengthening the mission of education and mentorship. Our greater goal is to help sow the seeds for a sustainable solution to take root, addressing the vast shortages of health professionals in many parts of the world.

Seed Global Health believes viable health systems and care delivery are central to reducing poverty and to ensuring that communities thrive. We are committed to being part of a much needed solution for sustainable, stronger health systems. Cultivating health systems and access to care is critical to the strength and well-being of communities and individuals together.

Seed Global Health and the Peace Corps work in a unique public-private partnership, the Global Health Service Partnership, building on the strengths of each organization in deployment and global health education.
