Who are we?

Our primary purpose is to improve people’s access to health services and to strengthen and empower our partners, building their capacity to deliver sustainable health and development programs.

Based in Perth, Western Australia, our organisation works closely with strategic partners to provide better access to a range of primary health, health education and community development services for disadvantaged rural communities in developing world contexts.

Founded in 2002, we initially worked in India for eight years before expanding into Zimbabwe in 2009. We have been working in Zimbabwe ever since. In 2018 we looked to expand again, by pursuing new opportunities and partnerships in Papua New Guinea. We are a small but growing organisation, operating on Christian principles.

Our short-term primary health teams provide opportunities for health professionals from around the world to come together to work alongside our partners to impact many thousands of people in rural contexts.

Testimonials

Erin Plumb (RN)

It was an absolute honour and privilege to be able to serve under Cosmos HealthCare to deliver professional development to Community Health Workers in Papua New Guinea. All staff members of Cosmos were friendly, organised and professional from my first interaction with the Medical Director via email, the admin ladies for logistics; and then CEO Jason during the trip.  From the minute I left home, to when my feet touched back on Australian soil, I felt honoured, safe, and part of the team. Interacting with the Community Health Workers was both humbling and rewarding. Hearing their stories around the communities they served stirred my heart deeply. A real highlight for me was to see them hear, embrace and respond to the principles of health promotion in their communities. I'm so excited to hear the difference their messages will make in the communities they are serving. Thank you Cosmos HealthCare for allowing me to serve with your organisation - and I can't wait to go again!

The three week trip was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. It has strengthened me and I have benefited in ways I could not imagine. God is faithful to do exceeding and abundantly more than we can ever ask for imagine!

Suzanne Reynolds (RN)

As a registered nurse who has been with Cosmos twice to Africa, I can say that it changed the course of my life. Cosmos does great work and brings relief to so many beautiful people there. Keep up the good work.

Lucy Webb-Martin (RN)

I found the trip immensely humbling. The people of Zimbabwe suffer terribly under extreme poverty and still manage to be cheerful, polite and kind. They do not complain and maintain a sense of pride, humour and hard work. It was a privilege to work with them and try and help in a small way. We can all learn a lot from their daily attitudes to a situation they have no control over. They blew me away and I was very lucky to be in a position to go to Zimbabwe and would love to go back. The organisation of Cosmos and how well cared for we were was fantastic and I would highly recommend anyone who is thinking of doing voluntary work to join the Cosmos team.

Naomi Sprigg dos Santos (RN)

The opportunities to volunteer with Cosmos Healthcare in Zimbabwe alongside the Sizoluwethu Primary Health team and in Papua New Guinea with the Primary Health Professional Development team have been instrumental in developing my confidence and faith in what God wants to do through us as Christians. I recommend that if you feel God is calling you into cross cultural work that you undertake volunteer opportunities and allow God to refine you.
