Vital International Foundation (VIF) is a non-governmental organization founded in 1996 in Ghana as a private sector response to the rapidly growing HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa.
Besides the HIV/AIDS programs, VIF has multiple educational programs to help improve the standard of education. These educational programs include test preparation for CGFNS/NCLEX for nurses, USMLE for doctors; and TOEFL, GRE, GMAT, and SAT test preparation for hopeful students wanting to study in the United States.
Many Africans go without proper health treatment and most certainly don't have medical insurance to pay for the services that are available. This program seeks to improve the medical situation so that more people can live a healthier and longer life.
