Efficient, well-organized and well-supplied health services can be life-saving and life-changing. More than half of the 6.6 million children under 5 years of age who die each year globally could be saved by access to effective, well-supported and well-trained healthcare professionals.
International Medical Corps today supports referral health services for healthcare facilities both large and small—from rural community-level clinics to large regional and national level hospitals. We work hand in hand with both national governments and local communities to ensure basic healthcare is available and affordable for all –whether residents of remote villages or large urban centers.
Training and education are also central to our support of health services. We train and mentor health providers, managers and community representatives to strengthen their abilities to manage, regulate and monitor their local health services.
