Over the past five years we have helped over 3,600,000 people access better healthcare.
Poor health creates a vicious cycle of poverty. Those in poverty become too ill to work, and money spent accessing healthcare pushes people further into poverty.
VSO volunteers work with health workers, communities and governments to improve health services and rights for some of the most marginalised and disadvantaged members of society - including women, babies, youth, people with disabilities, and prisoners.
