Medical Mission Trips with
International Medical Relief
International Medical Relief (IMR) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides health care to underserved and vulnerable people around the world. We’re looking for volunteer doctors, dentists, and other healthcare professionals, along with non-medical volunteers, for medical mission trips of 4-14 days. We have partnerships in more than 70 countries around the world, providing our volunteers the opportunity to serve those in need while experiencing a new culture at the same time.
IMR was founded on the belief that knowledge of basic health facts and access to health care should not be the prerogative of select nations, regions, or classes, but should be shared by as many people as possible. We undertake our work to include some of the millions of people who have been excluded from today’s healthcare systems worldwide. Through partnerships with local medical professionals and an entire community with regard to education, diagnosis, and treatment, a valuable sharing of knowledge occurs. This knowledge empowers people in limited resource settings to provide for their own health and for each other to create sustainability.

To be the preeminent global nonprofit health provider that will create, sustain, and enhance global community health status by providing compassionate, responsive, and high quality services.
International Medical Relief was founded in 2002 on the belief that knowledge of basic health facts and access to healthcare should not be the prerogative of select nations, regions, or classes, but should be shared by as many people as possible.

During our clinics, we partner with local medical and dental professionals to share knowledge about diagnoses and treatment. We also provide community health education so that people are empowered to provide for their own health, as well as for the health of other community members.
