Doctors of the World USA has launched its U.S.-Mexico Border Health Program (BHP)

In partnership with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso, and local organizations operating border shelters, the Border Health Program is a new direct services program aims to improve health outcomes of migrants and asylum seekers in transit at the Texas border town El Paso.

Our program offers transitional medical care, uses data to advocate for better public health policies and reduce burdens on local healthcare systems. It will further provide medical students with learning opportunities that will serve as the foundation for future research and curriculum development focused on migrant health. By leveraging their respective areas of expertise, we and our partners will work hard to ensure that migrants and asylum-seekers receive the care they deserve.

Indifference is a disease. The cure is ACTION.
