…was founded in 2016 by Dr. David Rutstein, former Acting Deputy Surgeon General of the United States.

His goal was to leverage his decades of expertise, and that of his extensive network, into a small, focused organization working to promote health and prevent disease, one population at a time.

As a global organization, SolHealth maintains a core Global Board of Directors, in addition to a local board in the country where we are operating at the time.
