Ascension Global Mission oversees international efforts that improve health and living status for poor and vulnerable populations in developing countries.

What we do

Ascension Global Mission supports international efforts that improve the health and well-being of poor and vulnerable populations in developing countries. We collaborate with religious communities abroad as well as U.S. and other international partners to:

  • Support and Strengthen Healthcare Delivery
    Ascension’s global outreach efforts focus on providing compassionate, personalized care and alleviating suffering through the provision of medical services and supplies to those in need as well as education as requested by local health care professionals.
  • Enable Greater Local Community Leadership in Health
    In response to a call to look beyond hospital walls and reduce the suffering of people around the world through greater prevention, Ascension Global Mission collaborates with faith-based partners in Guatemala to design a community governance/ empowerment model that supports local leaders as they develop and lead their community’s health improvement agenda.
