In support of Loma Linda University Health's international outreach mission, GHI collaborates with strategic partner sites to improve health around the world. We send employees, students, and other volunteer professionals to partner with other health professionals overseas to improve access and the quality of patient care. GHI offers short-term and long-term service opportunities for volunteers and international healthcare professionals. In addition, we provide triage and the procurement of appropriate medical equipment and supplies, much of which comes out of our own healthcare system.
