Our Story

Mobile Care Clinic Todu Guam Foundation
Guam NPO Volunteers with the Todu Guam Foundation
Basic Health Care For Guam Todu Guam Foundation

We opened our doors in 2016 to address health disparities and work towards health equity for Todu Guam.

In 2016, former Senator Dennis G. Rodriguez, Jr. served as Chairman of the Committee on Health in the 33rd Guam Legislature. He saw the health disparities and inequity on the island and envisioned the need for a different approach to providing access to care for the most vulnerable communities. The vision came to fruition when Senator Rodriguez and his family opened the doors to Guam’s first mobile health clinic and held a medical outreach that delivered medical care at no cost to uninsured and underinsured Guam residents. The Todu Guam Foundation (TGF) was then formed and has since become a locally and nationally recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the mission of providing access to primary healthcare, education, and support to the community.


Healthcare delivery is not experienced equitably by everyone in Guam. Guam’s healthcare system distributes services inefficiently and unevenly across its populations. Non-US-born citizens, Migrants, and low-income communities lack access to care and preventive health due to social determinants and poor health literacy. In addition, transportation and service costs are amongst the highest reasons these groups need more healthcare service delivery. TGF’s target community ranks high in communicable diseases and non-communicable diseases and lacks access to no-cost preventive services. TGF designed an intervention to address these healthcare challenges in Guam using the mobile clinic approach to deliver healthcare services at no cost to community members by bringing the clinic where they need it. 


TGF Mobile Care Clinic has delivered services to underserved Guam residents at no cost. Since 2016, TGF has grown to five programs that support the mobile clinic and included partnerships with the private and public sectors to expand services to the underserved population. These services include family medicine, women’s health education and prevention, social and emotional resilience and behavioral services, tuberculosis education, testing and treatment, immunizations, and vision care. The organization continues to grow by “bringing healthcare to you.” TGF continues to be the leader in addressing health equity and health disparities challenges by filling the gaps and bringing access to healthcare to those who need it most.

Todu Guam addresses health equity issues for the island's underserved population.

 In July 2016, with over 30 volunteers, we had our first outreach at the Paradise Fitness Center parking lot in Hagatna. Over 100 people came out to get their immunizations and consultations, among others. This was the first time our Mobile Care Clinic, our pioneer program, got into action. Inspired by the success of this community outreach, we held several more on the island until in 2017, Todu Guam Foundation was born. But it was only the beginning.

We knew that having the Mobile Care Clinic was good, but it only helped solve part of the problem. Many of our patients have socio-economic barriers that keep them from good health. That’s where our Patient Navigation & Financial Assistance program comes in. Complementing this is our Health Prevention & Education initiative that promotes sustainable health education and empowerment for the community. When the pandemic came, we also saw the need to strengthen and support the social and emotional needs of students and their families, proving that our mental well-being is an important part of our overall health. We do this through CARES Movement. All these programs came together through the help of our selfless donors and volunteers.

Truth be told, there’s still much to be done. But we are fueled by hope, inspiration, and the same unwavering faith that has sustained us since day one.

So for every person who’s had to choose between food or healthcare; For every child who is unable to play sports because his family cannot afford a physical; For every woman who cannot get a regular pap smear because she’s uninsured; For anyone in Guam who has ever needed medical care but was unable to get one, we see you. Todu Guam is here for you.

The COVID-19 pandemic hits the whole world. We develop our Patient Navigation and Financial Assistance Program to help our fellowmen who were in need of medical care. Through this, we are also able to deliver goods and physical exam vouchers to the island’s underserved residents needing healthcare for back-to-school physicals and immunizations.
