Mission: Mobilizing women to be champions for global health issues that impact women and their children.

Get Involved

Healthy Women, Healthy World was founded by a group of women from Portland who were inspired after traveling into the field with Medical Teams International. These travelers returned determined that women at home can make a difference for the women they met and all others whom Medical Teams serves in the world.

As a part of Healthy Women, Healthy World, you will have the opportunity to join like-minded women to learn about the global health issues that impact women and their children and learn what Medical Teams is doing address these issues. We're also excited to offer volunteer experiences both locally and abroad - on international team trips and in our distribution centers in Tigard and Redmond.

Throughout the year, Healthy Women, Healthy World members get the opportunity to take action and learn about the global health issues women and children are facing. All are welcome - RSVP for a local event and join us!
