MedGlobal’s medical mission to Yemen is in the final steps of preparation. Four physicians from Chicago will be embarking on a one week mission to provide medical care to Yemeni patients in different locations.

The purpose of this mission is to assess the humanitarian and medical situation, provide medical services to close to 2,000 patients, build relationships with the local medical community and NGOs, provide training to local healthcare workers, build capacity for telehealth for follow up, collect data for future research, and plan for sustainable programs in Yemen.

This mission is done in partnership with Projecthope and the Global Needs Foundation.

This will be the first of several missions to Yemen in the near future. More updates to come.
