Women and children living in Guatemala are disproportionately affected by poverty and other threats to their health and well-being. Donate today and help those in need get access to the healthcare they need.

Our Mission

The U.S. International Health Alliance is an international non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the living conditions and improving the health care status of people in the Petén region of Guatemala. We provide international service opportunities for U.S. medical professionals and students who work hand-in-hand with our Guatemalan team to serve these impoverished communities as a means of providing care and inspiring others to incorporate service into their professional life. Our purpose is to raise awareness and funds in the United States, allowing our Guatemalan Team to serve Peténeros who have limited access to medical care.

Inspire Others. Serve Communities. Volunteer.
