Health care that saves lives; training that builds self-reliance

LOS ANGELES,  June 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- International Medical Corps is renaming its website domain, as part of its ongoing efforts to highlight its humanitarian programs around the world.

The California-based humanitarian organization is currently delivering health care and training programs to those affected by disaster, conflict, famine and disease in 27 countries on four continents, including Sudan, Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Haiti.

International Medical Corps provides a range of primary and secondary health services focusing on immediate and chronic health care challenges in the world's most difficult and insecure environments.  At the heart of its relief and recovery efforts is a focus on: training local health workers; providing life-saving care to women and children; integrating mental health into primary care settings; and promoting the use of clean water, proper sanitation and hygiene.

Since its founding in 1984, International Medical Corps has delivered more than $1 billion in life-saving medical care and training to tens of millions of people across 50 countries.  International Medical Corps rehabilitates devastated health care systems and helps bring them back to self reliance.

Since its inception 25 years ago, International Medical Corps' mission has been consistent: relieve the suffering of those impacted by war, natural disaster, and disease, by delivering vital health care services that focus on training. This approach of helping people help themselves is critical to returning devastated populations to self-reliance. For more information visit:
