International Medical Corps

We are a global humanitarian organization dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering.

Established in 1984 by volunteer doctors and nurses, we are a nonprofit with no political or religious affiliation, and now have more than 8,000 staff members around the world, more than 96% of whom are local.

A preeminent first responder, International Medical Corps provides emergency relief to those struck by conflict, disaster and disease—no matter where they are, no matter what the conditions—working with them to recover, rebuild and gain the skills and tools required for self-reliance. After the emergency has passed and our disaster-relief effort has ended, we shift from emergency response to long-term medical support and training. We provide resources and training to help local staff provide a range of services—including healthcare, nutrition, water and sanitation support—to their communities.
