Abstract

Global health delivery is a complex initiative requiring dedicated personnel to achieve a successful program. To be most beneficial, global health delivery should focus on cultural competence, bidirectional education, and capacity building through direct and purposeful means. The authors present the expansion of their global health delivery program in Ecuador focusing on the evolution of the program from a medical mission trip to a multilayered program that helps foster engagement, education, and learning while helping children who might not otherwise have access to care, along with future directions and potential methods to decrease the need for such initiatives in Ecuador.
