OneWorld Health is upending healthcare in the developing world by moving beyond relief to achieve long-term improvements in health. OneWorld Health currently operates three financially self-sustaining health centers in Uganda and Nicaragua with additional projects underway in each country. The organization utilizes a facility-based model for healthcare, offering a full scope of medical services delivered by trained locals and offered at a price point affordable to the overwhelming majority of the population. OneWorld Health is working to change the culture of healthcare in the developing world by having patients take ownership in their health through a fee-for-service model. By creating financially sustainable health centers that offer low-cost services, OneWorld Health is bridging the gap between the under-functioning public healthcare system and unaffordable private health services.
