Americares helps build local healthcare capacity through our large partner network of medical and surgical volunteer teams. Our support increases their ability to travel abroad to provide medical and surgical care, train healthcare providers, respond to emergencies, and establish long-term relationships with the community.
Each year, the Americares Medical Outreach program supports more than 1,000 volunteer medical trips to approximately 80 countries with medicines, supplies, and educational resources.
The volunteer teams supported by Americares Medical Outreach treat nearly 700,000 primary care patients and perform over 40,000 surgeries in a given year. Each year, these volunteer health care professionals bring quality health care to more people around the world, while strengthening local health care institutions.
Visit our Medical Outreach Exchange to learn more about volunteer medical missions and find tools to prepare for the mission. Medical professionals who wish to request medicine and supplies for their volunteer trip can register and order online at our Medical Outreach Access portal.
“If we did not have Americares support, we could not have saved her life. Medicine and surgery is always delivered one patient at a time. I am deeply in debt to Americares. Thank you.”
