Who We Are

Improving the health and wellbeing of the people of the Americas is at the heart of PAHO Foundation’s work. As an independent nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, we are committed to enabling better health and a brighter future for people across the Americas.


Founded on September 5, 1968, PAHO Foundation delivers its mission by mobilizing resources, convening leaders and collaborating with partners to develop, evaluate and foster the implementation of regionally relevant public health models. These models are intended to have a profound and positive impact on seemingly intractable problems undermining the health and prosperity of people in the Americas. Our goal is to ensure the development of sustainable models that can be replicated and scaled across the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region. 


Our work will accelerate access to universal health care to improve and sustain the health of people in the Americas.
