Nixon Global Health Foundation
Working Towards a Brighter Future
Nixon Global Health Foundation is committed to helping the poorest people in the world have access to robust medical education, especially in those areas that otherwise have little or no established healthcare facilities. Our mission is to improve health in these regions using technology, bridging the knowledge gap, so preventing morbidity and mortality. Our charity believes by working together with local communities we can overcome our challenges more efficiently.
We accept grant applications for funding for charitable and non-profit activities that support our mission.
