Make A Difference
The Pan American Health and Education Foundation (PAHEF) is a 501(c)(3) public foundation, based in Washington, D.C., with a strong commitment to public health in the Americas. The Foundation works to advance public health in the region by working with private and public sector partners to jointly address key health, education, and training priorities. Our primary implementation partner is the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).
