Founded on September 5, 1968, PAHO Foundation, an independent nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, delivers its mission by mobilizing resources, convening leaders and collaborating with partners to develop, evaluate and foster the implementation of regionally relevant public health models. These models are intended to have a profound and positive impact on seemingly intractable problems undermining the health and prosperity of people in the Americas. Our goal is to ensure the development of sustainable models that can be replicated and scaled across the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region.
