Mission Statement

International Medical Relief provides access to sustainable community and public health education and medical services to underserved and vulnerable communities across the globe that will improve the health, wellness, and quality of life of those populations most in need.

Description

International Medical Relief (IMR) was founded in 2002 on the belief that knowledge of basic health facts and access to healthcare should be shared by as many people as possible. We partner with local medical and dental professionals to share knowledge about diagnoses and treatment. IMR provides free medical and dental care services, treatment and diagnosis, and medicines, caring for entire communities. IMR provides basic health education. Our global education programs build a better and more sustainable response towards the communities we serve. IMR builds a better and more sustainable response through training and partnerships with several health modules. We strengthen global health capacities through classes conducted by certified trainers on a variety of medical topics. Our Disaster Area Response Teams put their compassion into action by helping survivors impacted by disasters around the world. On average, our teams hit the ground within the first week of a disaster.

I have volunteered with International Medical Relief both locally, in Colorado, and internationally, in Haiti and Tanzania, as a non-medical volunteer. My experience has been that IMR teams bring medical expertise and supplies into places where they work collaboratively with local doctors, nurses, translators, and others within established sustainable long-term relationships. Recently on the Tanzania trip, I appreciated the emphasis on COVID-19 safety protocols, bringing people through triage procedures to see a doctor and to with pharmacists to receive necessary supplies. The local team decided on where clinics were needed and arranged local infrastructure. The Tanzanian doctors were able to work on providing long-term care as needed. I enjoyed working in our IMR Tanzanian team. I will continue to volunteer with IMR and am grateful to have the opportunity to serve in this collaborative and helpful environment.
