Medical mission teams represent an essential component of global health delivery. Most medical mission teams provide primary health care and surgical services for communities with limited access to health care in middle and lower-income countries.
A large number of MedShare’s health system interventions each year involve supporting medical mission teams traveling to some of the most remote parts of the world to provide health care. In fact, MedShare has equipped medical mission teams treating patients in medically underserved communities around the world with over $18 million in quality medical supplies to date.
