Who we are
Our organization was created by several Armenian nurses who have been very active in the Armenian community, traveled to Armenia regularly on medical missions, participated in medical and nursing conferences, and organized health fairs for the Armenian community. While visiting Armenia, it was noted that rural regions don’t have easy access to basic healthcare and require traveling long distances to reach a healthcare provider. HIE Initiative will work with community leaders and healthcare providers in Armenia and the United States to build community-run and self-sustained medical clinics in the rural regions of Armenia. We will involve community members to gain insight into the best and most innovative ways to improve their access to quality healthcare. We will help establish systems that provide consistent access and aim toward sustainability for future generations through community insight.
