International Medical Corps is a global humanitarian nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through healthcare training and relief and development programs.
Established in 1984 by volunteer doctors and nurses, International Medical Corps is a private, voluntary, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization. Its mission is to improve the quality of life through health interventions and related activities that build local capacity in areas worldwide. By offering training and healthcare to local populations and medical assistance to people at high risk, and with the flexibility to respond rapidly to emergency situations, International Medical Corps rehabilitates devastated healthcare systems and helps bring them back to self-reliance.
After a period of relative calm following the 2014 Israel–Gaza conflict, the security and political situation in Gaza deteriorated significantly in May 2021. Since mid-May, OHCHR has reported that 232 Palestinians, including 65 children and 39 women (of which 3 were pregnant), and 121 men have been killed in Gaza. Around 1,760 Palestinians have been injured, including 540 children, 361 women. The ongoing conflict situation has brought widespread devastation to an already impoverished territory and placed an additional burden on Gaza’s health infrastructure, which is already overwhelmed due to COVID-19. Utilizing internal and private donor funds, International Medical Corps has been working with local partners in Gaza to provide health, mental health, and nutrition services to vulnerable communities.
International Medical Corps is implementing a six month emergency project funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Bureau of Humanitarian Assistance (BHA). Under this project, International Medical Corps will support a multi-sectoral package of interventions including:
- healthcare services, including medicines and medical supplies;
- mental health services, including psychological first aid, for victims of trauma;
- emergency nutrition programming;
- support for survivors of gender-based violence (GBV);
- child protection and response activities; and
- services to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
