The goal of the Meriwether Foundation curative and preventive health programs is to improve the health of rural and peri-urban communities in Southern Africa by effectively treating those who are sick. Along with curative treatments, we implement public health methods to help educate and promote prevention.
Our programs include the construction and operation of clinics and health centers, mobile clinics, community health fairs, and water and sanitation projects.
