International Medical Corps brings nearly 30 years of experience to the NGO collective, dedicated to using collaboration and technology in development work
NetHope, a unique collaboration of the world’s leading international humanitarian organizations working together to solve common problems in the developing world with Information and Communication Technology (ICT) solutions, today announced International Medical Corps as its 39th member organization.
“I couldn’t be happier that International Medical Corps is now a NetHope member organization,” said William A. Brindley, Chief Executive Officer for NetHope. “Their nearly three decades worth of experience will enhance our efforts as we continue to drive collaborative emergency response as well as work across our other four core initiatives.”
International Medical Corps’ mission is to relieve the suffering of those affected by war, natural disaster and disease: delivering key health services, building local capacity through training and implementing development-focused programs to restore self-reliance. Like NetHope, the organization seeks to implement innovative solutions that better serve those people most in need.
“International Medical Corps is excited to join NetHope and like-minded member organizations that can share and collectively contribute industry insight, technology best practices, and lessons learned,” said David Giron, Information Technology Manager for International Medical Corps. “Knowing what works and what doesn’t in the most challenging field environments worldwide is key in driving technology solutions that enable efficient communication and collaboration to maximize impact in emergency response and development efforts.”
