IMA World Health

Their mission is to advance health and healing to vulnerable and marginalized people the world over. IMA World Health, a specialist in providing essential healthcare services and medical supplies around the world, is a nonprofit, faith-based organization working to restore health, hope and dignity to those most in need. They work primarily in the developing world, where an estimated 30 to 70 percent of health care is provided by faith-based organizations. IMA is the largest US-based, ecumenical, international health organization, and is widely recognized for its effective and careful use of resources. How They Work Highly Efficient – Efficiency is part of their culture. IMA was named one of Forbes' 20 most efficient charities two years in a row and has received Charity Navigator's highest efficiency ratings five years running. Expertly Effective – Their programs have become internationally known for creating sustainable long-term health care solutions in areas with little to no existing health care infrastructure. Faith-Based – IMA is uniquely equipped for their work in the developing world, where 30-70% of health care is provided by faith-based organizations (FBOs). Their partnership with other FBOs, coupled with their close work with governments and other health care partners, gives IMA a unique capacity to make significant impacts. Who They Serve Since 1960, IMA's programs have reached millions of people in need in many corners of a hurting world, in developing countries and areas ravaged by war, disaster and poverty. In the past 50 years, IMA has provided more than $1 billion in medicines to over 52 countries and their capabilities continue to expand. Their work is never done; wherever there is disease or disaster, IMA will work to bring hope through health and healing. Their Offices IMA is headquartered in the beautiful rolling farmlands of New Windsor, Maryland, USA. We currently have field offices in Tanzania, Haiti, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Southern Sudan, and Kenya. All around the world, we focus on four primary goals: 1. Provide essential medicines and medical supplies – Their various international public health programs, IMA Medicine Boxes®, Safe Motherhood Kits™, Healthy Kids Kits and targeted donations deliver urgently needed supplies to those to need them most. 2. Fight diseases – In addition to HIV/AIDS care and treatment, IMA has a long history in targeting diseases that don’t always make the news, including Neglected Tropical Diseases and the dangerous and disfiguring, yet treatable, childhood cancer Burkitt’s Lymphoma. 3. Educate and train people – They empower community health workers, health networks and health care personnel with skills and knowledge to improve care and save lives. 4. Seek long-term, sustainable solutions – The DRC and Southern Sudan are models of improved long-term health care programs that will continue to benefit millions long after IMA’s direct involvement ceases. WHAT THEY DO  Whether responding to a natural disaster or the health needs of a war-torn population, IMA's programs focus on improving the accessibility and quality of health care among people who need it most.  Provide Medicines and Supplies Staying true to their roots, IMA continues to send essential medicines and supplies all over the globe where they are needed most. Fight Disease Preventable and treatable diseases affect millions of people every year. IMA's programs target specific diseases that plague the developing world to reduce and, hopefully one day, eradicate them. Capacity Building IMA strives to develop sustainable health care programs that will continue to succeed long after their involvement ends. Through training, IMA is a key player in building the capacity of workers and hospitals to provide long-term, quality health care services. Health Systems Development In many developing countries, health care systems are simply not robust enough to meet the extensive needs of the people. IMA works to strengthen these systems to reach more people and improve the quality of care. Health Information Systems In order to provide quality health care, it is essential to know what resources are available. IMA supports sustainability by developing systems for tracking and analyzing data and by training workers how to use them.
