Our mission is to create and maintain educational partnerships that will ultimately have a sustainable impact on improving the health and care of children in resource poor regions
Partners for Pediatric Progress is a 501(c)3 non-profit project of the Program in Global Health and the Center for World Health at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
We are committed to building the local capacity of our global partners by training local healthcare workers and medical faculty, who can in turn train the next generation of local physicians. The program sponsors physicians from our partner sites to train at UCLA. We also send UCLA medical students and physicians abroad to work with local health professionals and strengthen the healthcare system’s capacity to take care of children.
Our major partner sites are in Mozambique and Peru.
