400 million people around the world do not have access to essential health services.
That is more than the entire population of the United States.
Millions of people living in rural Africa and Latin America travel for hours, even days, to arrive at a hospital or clinic often to find an understaffed facility. Many locations lack the necessary doctors to provide even basic care.
For nearly six decades, Mission Doctors has trained, sent and supported Catholic doctors and their families who come from across the United States to serve people of all faiths in some of the most under-served areas of the world.
We believe everyone should have access to lifesaving medical care.
