GLOBAL OHNS INITIATIVE
Towards universal access to high-quality, safe, timely, and affordable care for those with conditions of the head and neck
The Global OHNS Initiative is now a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation! We are now accepting donations which will support our mission to ensure everyone has access to top-notch care for head and neck cancer, hearing loss, facial trauma, and other health conditions. Your contribution is invaluable in fueling our work in research and advocacy.
If you are interested in joining the Global OHNS Initiative, please send us a message on the "Contact Us" page.
Read about the stark disparities in global OHNS clinician density, ranging from 0.18 clinicians per 100,000 population in Africa to 5.70 in Europe, in a recent publication by Global OHNS Initiative members. These findings underscore the urgent need for targeted workforce interventions to address inequity in access to OHNS care.

We have adapted PIH Rwanda's research guidelines to ensure equitable representation in our projects. The Global OHNS Initiative's Research Equity Guidelines were published by the open-access journal Oto Open and are available on our research page.
