Physicians for Peace: Dominican Republic

physiciansforpeace.org

Physicians for Peace trains providers of surgical care to strengthen healthcare systems in the world's most fragile places. We envision a world where no one struggles with illness, disability or death due to the lack of quality local surgical care.

The purpose of Physicians for Peace is to educate and empower local providers of surgical care to alleviate suffering and transform lives in under-resourced communities around the world.

The attainment of health is a basic need that transcends race, religion, politics and geography. “
