-Providing free acute and preventative health care services and delivering donated medical supplies to isolated areas.
-Reducing child and maternal mortality through food safety/prenatal education, nutritional counseling and clean water solutions.
-Studying and documenting local systems of health care delivery and identifying what progress have been made, what challenges remain, and what solutions exist to improve health care delivery worldwide.
