Beginning with the development of the classic Where There Is No Doctor in the mountains of Mexico in the early 1970s, Hesperian Health Guides has developed and distributed health materials now available in over 80 languages. We work with hundreds of partners who help us update and field test materials to ensure they are accurate and easy-to-use. We take all this work to scale with a paid staff of under 25 and an ever-increasing number of volunteers, currently at over 200. Hesperian is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and is supported by the generous gifts of individual and institutional donors, as well as revenue streams from the sale of books, resources, and digital tools.
