Georgia Volunteer Health Care Program (GVHCP)


The Georgia Volunteer Health Care Program (GVHCP) of the Department of Public Health (DPH) provides Sovereign Immunity protection to licensed health care professionals who volunteer to treat uninsured individuals at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level. Our goal is to increase access to quality health care for underserved Georgians through volunteerism and state-sponsored liability protection. The benefits for volunteering for this program include continuing education credits, relationship building in your community and more importantly saving lives.
