Collaborating with local government agencies and other humanitarian actors, we evaluate the emergency’s impact and coordinate with our humanitarian response roster of trained and experienced humanitarian response personnel to respond within 48 hours. Through partnerships with local health organizations, we provide emergency medical care, transitional health, and community programming for impacted communities, from humanitarian response to development, saving lives and improving quality of care. MTI’s humanitarian response interventions include health, nutrition, and WASH.
