Hydraulic Technologies, Inc believes that every organization has a social responsibility to give back. As such, we leverage our profits to create a better future for our planet, through the Ventura Global Health Project (VGHP), based in Ventura, California.
The Ventura medical community has a long tradition of service to humanity, anchored by a family residency program that is nationally recognized for its commitment to global health. As a Ventura resident and one of HTI’s partners, Jim Neitz, saw the need and the opportunity to help the world’s underserved populations access proper medical care and, in 2012, he helped establish VGHP.
VGHP is a non-profit organization that helps local medical professionals provide healthcare to the world’s most needy, regardless of political affiliation, religious belief, ethnic identity or ability to pay. Through VGHP, young medical professionals have been able to serve in clinics and field hospitals in countries like Cameroon, Chad, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Honduras, Malawi, Mexico, and Niger, to name a few. They offer direct clinical services and help local clinics get established and grow with their own teams.
Sub-Saharan Africa, for example, has only 1,000 doctors for 30 million people. By contrast, California would have 150,000 doctors for the same population. VHGP’s goal is to double the number of doctors in this region in 40 years. This means training and deploying 25 doctors per year.
