Our mission is to give health workers in emerging nations the necessary medical skills and clinic operations to treat their own people from their own resources.
Many developing countries are stuck in a cycle of perpetual dependence on Western charity because local health workers lack the clinical skills and operational systems needed to care for their own patients. Global Medic Force addresses this by sending expert medical professionals to transfer their medical skills to colleagues in developing countries, thereby optimizing clinic operations. As a result, hundreds of thousands of patients receive quality care when none existed before.
Global Medic Force recruits and prepares Western physicians and nurses for rapid skill transfer. They are stationed on a pro bono basis in clinics in developing countries for 6-12week periods.
When local health workers lack the skills and systems to care for their own patients, the entire country suffers. By creating local medical expertise, a healthcare system that will benefit patients across diseases is built from within.
