HHI Becomes WHO-Verified Emergency Medical Team

Critical Medical Aid for Israeli-Palestinian Crisis

HHI is actively coordinating with longstanding partners to deliver critical medicines, medical supplies and hygiene kits to the Israeli and Palestinian communities affected by the fighting. We currently have shipments headed to Lebanon, Israel, and Gaza/West Bank, and are working with partners to deliver more desperately needed aid, including trauma supplies, and medicine to support those displaced and impacted by the crisis. Read more about this important crisis response.

Improving Health in Eswatini

In the heart of Eswatini, a small, landlocked nation in Southern Africa, we have been making strides in improving healthcare access and quality through an innovative partnership with BD, a global medical technology company. In August, staff and volunteers spent weeks in the country, building a new medical clinic, providing nurse training and meeting with Ministry of Health officials. Read more about how this project is helping people in this under-resourced community in Africa.
