Medical Ministry International facilitates the work of volunteer health care workers, students, and non-medical support personnel from Canada, the United States, and around the world, to serve on 1 and 2-week project teams in strategic communities alongside willing partners. MMI supports and assists health centers to increase access to affordable, quality health care. MMI supports residency training programs to expand the skills of international doctors with the goal of improving accessibility in their home countries.
Our Strategy to Health Care Development
1. Strengthening and supporting local health centers.
2. Facilitating short-term project teams that come alongside our in-country project directors and facilities to build medical capacity for the long term.
3. Providing Residency Training and Fellowship Programs for medical professionals to increase their ability to help their own community.
4. We ask the patients to invest in their care. When they do, they follow the doctor’s orders and treat the medicine, equipment, etc. they receive well. We don’t want to create a paternalistic, dependence mentality.
Project Teams support Ongoing Services at Health Care Centers
We seek to establish medical platforms for service and education that build medical capacity for those that need it most. We endeavor to establish long term programs and facilities that address these needs.
We have MMI Project Directors on the ground working side by side with the community.
Through our Leadership Training Program in Canada, we provide support and help train the people in the community to build their ability to oversee local initiatives.
That is our calling, and with the help of over 1,000 project participants, local volunteers, and loyal donors annually, we continue to increase the footprint of service provided by Canadians and Americans throughout the 19 countries where MMI serves.
