Medical mission trips with IMR provide short-term volunteer opportunities abroad for medical professionals and dental professionals, students, and non-medical volunteers with any level of experience. Our medical and dental clinics provide free healthcare and health education in more than 57 countries in areas where care is limited or difficult to obtain.
We make all arrangements for our volunteers, including transportation, lodging/meals, government permits, and clinic logistics. Equipment, supplies, and medicines to operate our clinics come from donations through partnerships with U.S. pharmaceutical and medical supply companies, hospitals, and other health and development organizations, as well as donations from private supporters. IMR operates with just 1.5% administrative and fundraising costs so more than 98 cents of every dollar donated is invested directly into our programs.
International Medical Relief (IMR) is a registered 501(c)(3) medical organization with NGO status based in the United States. We provide mobile medical clinics and sustainable health education to underserved communities in 57 countries around the world.
IMR offers short-term assignments for volunteer medical professionals and dental professionals, students, and non-medical volunteers to conduct medical and dental clinics that provide free, expert care and health education in areas where it is limited or difficult to obtain.
IMR was founded on the belief that knowledge of basic health facts and access to healthcare should not be the prerogative of select nations, regions, or classes, but should be shared by as many people as possible. We undertake our work to include some of the millions of people who have been excluded from today’s healthcare systems worldwide. During our clinics, we partner with local medical and dental professionals to share knowledge about diagnoses and treatment. We also provide community health education so that people are empowered to provide for their own health, as well as for the health of other community members.
IMR contributes to the world’s communities by improving the overall health and wellness of the people via medical diagnosis and treatment, partnerships with local medical designees, community training, and fostering the principles of prevention.
To provide access to health care in underserved and vulnerable communities around the world to improve the health, wellness, and quality of life of those populations most in need.
OUR VISION: To be the preeminent global nonprofit health provider that will create, sustain, and enhance global community health status by providing compassionate, responsive, and high quality services.
