:HWB People's Clinics
Herbalists Without Borders People's Clinics
Global citizens continue to be marginalized, displaced, unemployed, homeless, imprisoned, or forced into prostitution or human slavery. Many people struggle economically, living in rural isolation to overcrowded refugee camps - all facing incredible barriers to health and wellness. HWB promotes down to the ground green medicine for people who desire access to natural and botanical medicine based on need and not the ability to pay. All HWB clinics depend on the generosity and volunteer time of the natural medicine communities they serve, from people like you.
HWB has many types of People's Clinics: Free Clinics, Mobile People's Clinics, Herbal Street Medics, Herb Buses, Rural Access Projects, Herb Barges, and Borderless Medicine
Millions of people are systematically neglected or excluded from conventional health care. HWB believes in creating innovative grassroots projects such as PEOPLES CLINICS and STREET MEDIC PROJECTS to link people with accessible natural and botanical medicine that is localized and sustainable.
Our Community Clinics Model informally began in 1995 (later formalizing in 2007) with mobile natural medicine clinic units in various locales providing accessible health and wellness education to patients and communities.
HWB clinics offer both free and sliding scale health and wellness services to patients in dire need. These Peoples Clinics vary depending upon the chapter that organizes them. Some are walk-in, by appointment, staffed by volunteer herbalists, naturopaths, massage therapists, reflexologists and sundry other Complementary Alternative Medicine practitioners, as well as clinical herbalism students. Clinics are hosted monthly in some regions and daily in other regions.
All are run by volunteers.
Peoples Clinics are as based on the needs of the people they serve in communities world wide.
