In 2016 OneWorld Health and NEEDTOBREATHE set an audacious goal, to open the first ever NEEDTOBREATHE Medical Center in Tola, Nicaragua. On January 22, 2017 that goal was fulfilled with the dedication of the facility to NEEDTOBREATHE and their incredible fans that turned the dream into a reality!
2016 was an overwhelming success, so much so that we have set our sights on doing it again. NEEDTOBREATHE and OneWorld Health are working toward the goal of opening the second NEEDTOBREATHE Medical Center in Jinoetega, Nicaragua!
OneWorld Health is a non-profit based in Charleston, SC that is revolutionizing the approach to medical intervention in the developing world by moving beyond relief to achieve long-term improvements in health. In a world where nearly half the population lives on less than $2 per day (Source: UN, 2013), socialized healthcare systems are overcrowded, poorly equipped, and underfunded. OWH is bridging the gap between ineffective, socialized care and unaffordable, private care. By creating sustainable medical centers that offer low-cost services, OWH is able to increase accessibility to high-quality healthcare and empower communities for a healthy tomorrow.
