Our Mission

Our Mission

International Medical Corps UK is a Global First Responder

We provide training and deliver emergency healthcare and related services to those affected by conflict, natural disaster and disease no matter where they are, no matter what the conditions. 

We train people in their communities, providing them the skills needed to recover, chart their own path to self-reliance and become effective First Responders themselves.

We are a global, non-profit, humanitarian aid organisation dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering by providing emergency relief, healthcare training and development programs to those in great need.

Established in 1984 by volunteer doctors and nurses, we are a private, voluntary group with no political or religious affiliation. Our mission is to improve the quality of life through health interventions and related activities that strengthen underserved communities worldwide.

With the flexibility to respond rapidly to emergencies no matter where in the world they occur, we offer training and health care to local populations and medical assistance to people at highest risk, always working to strengthen health care systems and promote self-reliance.

As conditions ease, we embed lifesaving skills and knowledge through training individuals and working with local leaders in the communities to build back stronger. Through our training programmes and community education efforts, we pass essential skills into local hands, preparing those in disaster-prone areas to better withstand adversity.
