Who We Are
Project Health CV Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 2009 by medical staff from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. The mission’s purpose is to provide medical as well as specialized surgical services in Cape Verde.
PHCV Inc. is dedicated to improving lives by introducing world class medical care to the people of Cape Verde and providing those in need access to general and preventative healthcare information.
Our mission is to continue the training of health care providers and transporting necessary medical equipment to Cape Verde. The aforementioned meetings were valuable in that the health/hospital administrators were very informative in terms of communicating the medical needs of the people in Cape Verde.
Amongst the most urgent needs were: blanket warmers, incubators, recovery room/intensive care unit services, a trauma program, emergency medicine training, pediatric care, oncology, vascular and most importantly, biomed engineering.
Though our needs are great, with continued support we will persevere.
Through generous donations, PHCV was able to send over $100,000 worth of medical equipment and upon arrival, the team immediately began training physicians, and ancillary personnel, by way of observation, to utilize the machines in Cape Verde. They also performed lesser invasive urological procedures in one of the largest hospitals in Cape Verde.
