Emergency

Sierra Leone gets to zero Ebola

The final Ebola patient left her handprint on our survivor wall marking the countdown to the country being declared Ebola free

No matter where, first there

our commitment|30 yrs experience|Humanitarian experts

Because speed saves lives during the initial hours following a disaster our emergency response teams deploy fast and begin their lifesaving work immediately, even in the most challenging environments.

Drawing on three decades of experience our teams include doctors and nurses, trained in emergency medicine together with specialists who provide a wide range of help.

These teams remain on permanent standby, prepared to travel anywhere in the world at a few hours notice, bringing expertise and medical care to those in the greatest need. Our logisitcs teams have humanitarian supplies strategically positioned so they can reach affected communities as soon as possible.

Whilst our emergency responses cover a wide range of activities, at the heart of every emergency is our commitment to delivering safe and free primary health care, secondary health care and where appropriate surgery to those affected by disasters and conflict.

International Medical Corps' unique commitment to creating skilled local health workers means we begin training people from day one of an emergency, even as the crisis is still developing. 

Our current and most recent emergencies include responding to the devastating earthquakes that killed 8,600 people in Nepal; operating five Ebola treatment centres in Sierra Leone and Liberia and providing help to the millions of innocent victims of the conflict in Yemen.
