Build Health International

BHI designs, builds and equips high-quality, sustainable health-care facilities in impoverished regions of the world.  The non-profit, founded and led by Jim Ansara and Dr. David Walton, offers hands-on construction know-how in resource-constrained areas, trains community members to staff and maintain facilities, and provides ongoing managerial support. BHI has taken on almost 40 major projects — many as builder or consultant — in Haiti, Peru, Liberia, Malawi, Rwanda, and Sierra Leone.  BHI offers its partners feasibility studies and master planning; coordination of architecture and engineering; oversight of management and construction; development of a facilities management team; and a focus on sustainability.
