International Medical Aid Program

Global Links works in resource-poor communities in Latin America and the Caribbean. Collaborating with partners at all levels – the Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization, the Ministries of Health in each country, municipal governments, local hospitals, health centers, and doctors in the field - ensures that our projects will make a lasting improvement in each country’s healthcare infrastructure. These partnerships have always been essential components of our model of targeted aid through cooperation, and provide the framework for our mission.
