Village Health Works Overview

Village Health Works (VHW) was established as a 501 (c) (3) organization in 2006 with the goal of addressing social justice issues in rural Burundi through the provision of high quality health care, education, and economic development opportunities. VHW works across five thematic areas (Health, Education, Economic Development, Food Security, and Community Engagement) to improve local livelihoods and restore dignity and hope to hundreds of thousands. While VHW has adopted a holistic approach in its response to the needs of targeted households and communities, the health sector currently represents the largest component of VHW’s work. Primary health care is provided through a clinic, and community outreach activities are conducted through mass campaigns and a large network of community health workers. With the current construction of a Women’s Health Pavilion underway, emergency care, inpatient care, surgical, obstetric and neonatal services will be provided starting in 2019.
