Partners in Developing Countries
All requests for assistance for ICEHA’s clinical mentor volunteers originate within developing countries. ICEHA does not open country offices but rather forms close partnerships with local organizations which become responsible for coordinating local logistics and program management within the countries. Most often, the local organization is the official “face” of ICEHA within their country borders. These partners are critical to ensuring the success of ICEHA.
