Created in 2004, IAHDO is a non-profit organization aimed at increasing and improving health care delivery throughout the Americas. One of the ways we envision this goal being met is through the empowerment of local individuals and health practitioners. We believe in establishing lasting relationships with local leaders in addition to fostering public-private partnerships to ensure our work is sustainable and capable of achieving intended goals. IAHDO was created to improve the quality of life of the most disenfranchised by improving health. Good health is a prerequisite to individual and social advances.
