It is supported by local volunteer doctors and returning doctors from the US and India. The 3000 sq ft eco-green clinic/infirmary/pharmacy is planned to open March 2013 providing primary care, dental and optometry services to the entire region. A satellite link with digital imaging at the clinic will allow specialists from around the world to "virtually" evaluate and treat patients in need.

Dental care is often overlooked in communities without adequate medical care. AD World Health has incorporated both dental and medical care into their model. At the Manjushree Orphanage in Tawang, India, the 100+ children were brushing their teeth, but all the toothbrushes were in one basket. Children would take a brush, any brush, to clean their teeth. By sharing oral bacterial among the children, the entire group was showing signs of upper respiratory infection. AD World Health volunteer Brian build two extremely long toothbrush holders so each child would have their own, personal toothbrush. The children have assigned numbers and so do the toothbrush holder slots and the toothbrushes. Such a simple thing can make such a huge difference in the health and wellbeing of these children. Thank you AD World Health!

AD+ World truly encompasses its tag line of "A Collaborative Effort To Heal The World" by being extremely hands in its approach. I've been a part of the team for some months now, and everyone- from myself to the trained medical professionals volunteer their time and effort to really make a change in the world. So much can be accomplished if you become the change you want to see. AD+ World really strives for that.

I got started helping with AD+ about 6 months ago and have found the entire organization to be so wholesome. AD is one organization that I can feel pride in helping because I know how much good they REALLY do.
It's not just band aid work either, AD+ is one of the few non profits to be making a real, lasting impact on communities around the world.

AD+ is an organization of the people for the people, especially those who need it most, the sick, the children, the less fortunate. When AD+ is involved you know your contribution, time, and effort is only used directly for the project - nothing else. There are so many that have benefitted and so many more to come.
