Program Overview:

Bridge to Health Medical and Dental was founded in Toronto, Canada and is comprised of a passionate group of professionals brought together by a common desire to provide healthcare to those in tremendous need. BTH provides sustainable healthcare in a cost effective manner to rural under-serviced populations in collaboration with local partners. Another major focus is education, training, and Train-the-Trainer Certifications for local healthcare providers and patients creating innovative solutions to complex problems.

The organization currently operates in underserved rural communities near Kabale, Uganda and Kisumu, Kenya. BTH is collaborating with local partners of: non-profit organization Kigezi Healthcare Foundation in Uganda along with the Kisumu County Government and non-profit organization Africa Cancer Foundation in Kenya. It offers a combination of “Clinical Brigades”, innovative research, education, training programs, Train-the-Trainer Certifications, and public health interventions to make a long-term impact on community health.

Recently BTH USA has begun the process of officially registering here in Washington DC and is pending its 501(c)(3) status. It is creating its first program in Baltimore, Maryland to meet the most pressing health care needs in this legacy city by collaborating with a number of nationally and internationally recognized organizations. Three [3] other targeted American cities are being explored at this time. Some American healthcare inequalities mirror those of developing countries. BTH USA’s goal is to better align and deploy existing resources. At-risk communities should have even better healthcare services as some of the finest healthcare institutions in the world are located right in targeted neighborhoods.
