    The VHP (Voluntary Health Program)  is a nonprofit health care program which focuses on primary medical and surgical eye care to under-served rural areas in Central America and the Dominican Republic. It is an integrated program offering high quality and accessible eye care to our Latin American neighbors. An essential part of our support is to work in a close partnership with those who live or work in the region we are serving.

    VHP is committed to offering educational support to health care providers in areas that we serve. Our mission group provides comprehensive on site diagnosis, surgical and medical treatment of eye diseases. The distribution of corrective glasses for those in need is also an essential part of the program. 

    Physicians, nurses and trained eye screening volunteers are our most valued resources. The superior knowledge and skill of this broad-based team and their compassionate concern for each patient’s welfare is the basis of the Volunteer Health Program.
