Good mental and physical health is key to sustainable development and building healthy and happy communities. Now more than ever, we must increase access to free healthcare and health education across the globe to achieve an acceptable standard of living and wellbeing for all.

”Antigua, Guatemala was one of the most beautiful places that I have ever been. I felt like I was actually doing work that was helping me give back to others. It was amazing to go from volunteering on such small scale in West Virginia to volunteering and providing actual medical care to the people of Guatemala. My housemates became some of my closest friends. This experience changed my life and furthered my love for travel and culture. I cannot wait for my next trip with IVHQ!”
