Connecting people and organizations for greater global impact.

The need in the developing world is great, and it cannot always be met by organizations working independently. HealthWorks Collaborative is the team behind the team — when we collaborate, more good is accomplished.

About Us


About Us

Our work scales the efforts of international public health organizations by connecting volunteers with organizations and opportunities, providing administrative expertise, and supporting expenses associated with medical supplies and volunteer travel.

While our work is global in scope, our emphasis is on projects in Central and South America. HealthWorks Collaborative focuses on providing public health care including surgery, clean water and improved sanitation, safe cooking methods, health education, and disease prevention to underserved populations.

History


History

HealthWorks Collaborative began as the SMG Foundation in 1997 with a focus on child care/treatment agencies that operated residential facilities for at-risk children.

In 2011, a new generation of trustees gradually shifted the focus of the Foundation’s work to pediatric surgical trips to Central America. In 2016, the SMG Foundation relaunched as HealthWorks Collaborative, to scale the efforts of international public health organizations by connecting volunteers with organizations and opportunities, providing administrative expertise, and supporting expenses associated with medical supplies and volunteer travel.
