How we Started
MedGlobal culturally diverse teams respond to the world’s humanitarian crisis by partnering with communities to provide innovative, sustainable and dignified healthcare
Purpose & Operating Principles
We are committed to implement our missions based on the following operating principles:
What we do
MedGlobal deploys Short Term Medical Missions, STMMs, composed of carefully-vetted global healthcare volunteers, provide assistance and education to local partners and healthcare providers, support local medical providers with training, funding, technology and advocacy and donate medical equipment, medications and medical supplies in order to provide life-saving and life-sustaining medical services, based on needs-assessment and best practices, to the most vulnerable around the globe.
Through partnerships with local organizations, training of local professionals and increasing the capacity of local organizations and hospitals, we sustain our impact and address the need for primary and specialty care services in women’s health, children’s health, non-communicable diseases, infectious diseases, mental health and surgeries incorporating best practices, technology and innovations.
Through quality improvement we aim to establish a culture of healthcare quality, prioritize areas of improvement, collect and analyze data and communicate our results while committing to ongoing evaluation and sharing our results with the wider community.
So far, MedGlobal has deployed more than 400 medical volunteers in 132 missions to 13 different countries since its inception. MedGlobal has donated more than 1 million dollars of medications, medical supplies and equipment. Our medical volunteers have donated more than 1 million dollars of professional medical services and provided dozens of training courses to local healthcare providers.
We use smart advocacy to shape policy towards the populations we serve.
