International Medical Corps is a global First Responder

We deliver emergency healthcare and related services to those affected by conflict, natural disaster and disease, no matter where they are, no matter what the conditions. We then train people in their communities, providing them with the skills they need to recover, chart their own path to self-reliance and become effective First Responders themselves.

We are a global, nonprofit, humanitarian aid organization dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering by providing emergency medical services, as well as healthcare training and development programs, to those in great need. Established in 1984 by volunteer doctors and nurses, we are a private 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 medical assistance and training to people at the highest risk, always working to strengthen local healthcare systems and promote self-reliance.
