Experts in managing every level of health care
Managing hospitals|Increasing reach|Extensive Training
In countries where natural disasters, political instability or conflict have caused long lasting damage to the health care system, there may be circumstances where outside help is needed to run the most complex parts of the system as it is rebuilt.
International Medical Corps’ global expertise in managing every level of medical and health systems, means we are well placed to provide that support.
In South Sudan, after several years of technical support and expansion of the Kajo Keji Civil Hospital, International Medical Corps was able to transition hospital management to the local State Ministry of Health. The facility now provides full medical and health care services to more than 200,000 in the region.
In Kabul our teams worked with Afghanistan’s Ministry of Public Health and local staff to modernise and boost the capacity of the Wazir Akbar Khan hospital. We have helped hospital staff to develop effective administration systems, expand the use of information technology and modernise records systems. We also operate Afghanistan’s only mental health and substance abuse hospital.
In recent years International Medical Corps has also supported the management, expansion and operation of hospitals in Iraq and Haiti.
These efforts are accompanied by extensive training programmes, designed to pass on the skills needed to carry out the advanced medical techniques of a modern hospital facility, as well as manage those hospitals, into the hands of local people.
