Lifesaving health care to self reliance

Emergency|Recovery|Resilience

International Medical Corps delivers lifesaving health care in emergencies for people affected by disaster or conflict. No matter where, no matter what the conditions, we are the first there…

And we stay, helping people survive and rebuild through the building blocks of recovery – water, food, safety, medicine.

Finally, we help people and communities stand on their own by passing on skills and knowledge locally through training.

We assist those in urgent need anywhere, anytime, no matter what the conditions, providing lifesaving health care and health care-related emergency services—often within hours.

As conditions ease, we work with local leaders to rebuild stronger. In non-emergency settings, our focus is development. Through our training programmes, we pass essential skills into local hands, preparing those in disaster-prone areas. Embedding these skills lies at the heart of what we do.

It gives people hit by tragedy a sense of ownership over their own recovery and the ability to shape their own future as they rebuild. And wherever it occurs, it is an investment that benefits us all because it prepares local people to respond themselves when disaster strikes.

Working in 13 out of the 14 most violent conflict zones in the world we have more than 6,000 staff in 31 countries.
