MEDICAL AND PUBLIC HEALTH
Improving the health and well-being of communities in need.
Join our “Health for All” program and be part of the positive change in the health and well-being of communities in need. Your dedicated participation will make a tangible difference in people’s lives, helping, education, and hope for a healthier future. Together, we will bring health to all.
In our project, we focus on providing medical assistance, health education, and promoting healthy habits to improve the quality of life for individuals and communities as a whole. We work with passion and commitment to ensure that everyone has access to necessary medical care and is empowered to make healthy decisions.
Health is crucial for human development, but unfortunately, accessing it in Peru is very challenging, especially for the impoverished. That’s why Expand Peru has created the medical volunteer program, through which volunteers assist poor children and adults in various areas of specialized care.
Our main goal is to improve the health and well-being of individuals and communities through medical assistance, health education, and the promotion of healthy habits. We aim to prevent diseases, provide basic care, and encourage a healthy lifestyle for all.
