International Medical Corps

We are a global, nonprofit, humanitarian aid organization dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering by providing emergency relief, health care training and development programs to those in great need.

Established in 1984 by volunteer doctors and nurses, we are a private, voluntary group with no political or religious affiliation. Our mission is to improve the quality of life through health interventions and related activities that strengthen underserved communities worldwide. With the flexibility to respond rapidly to emergencies no matter where in the world they occur, we offer training and health care to local populations and medical assistance to people at highest risk, always working to strengthen health care systems and promote self-reliance.
