PAGH | Physician Assistants for Global Health

Welcome to Physician Assistants For Global Health!

PAs for Global Health (PAGH) is a grassroots non-profit organization working to meet the needs of PAs interested in working in medically under served areas around the globe.

There is a tremendous amount of interest in volunteering, global health, and the PA role in the international arena. PAGH was designated by the AAPA to handle many of these issues. We are the only PA organization of this type and are working to organize and centralize the PA profession and support individual PAs in their efforts.

PAGH is a completely volunteer-run and member funded. We can do great things through the power of teamwork!
