WHF is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that strives to improve the academic quality of health care professionals and facilitate their efforts to give back to society. One of our missions is to promote healthcare related educational and research activities.
Specifically, WHF is organized exclusively for charitable, educational, scientific and literary purposes.
As a nonprofit organization, we rely on the financial help obtained through donations and fundraising events, where all proceeds received, are utilized towards the fulfillment of our Foundation’s objectives.
Since its establishment in 2014, we have had the honor and distinction of working with healthcare professionals, including physicians, researchers, postgraduate students who are employed or affiliated with reputable higher education institutes and research organizations.
Most notably, WHF has been affiliated with the Harvard T. H. Chan, School of Public Health. Which is geared towards advancing knowledge and creating practical and cost-effective solutions to complex public health problems based on rigorous research. Our work has a greater global impact because of Harvard’s unique opportunities for learning and leadership. Specifically, we collaborate with the Harvard School of Public Health in organizing practicum projects and their members have mentored the master program students of Harvard’s Public Health and Epidemiology Department in the past.
