The goal: work ourselves out of a job
Sustainable healthcare is always the long-term goal for Mission Doctors. We partner with local facilities, Catholic Bishops, Priests, Religious Sisters, and Brothers to provide direct patient care and training for local health professionals. In 1959, Mission Doctors began working in East Africa. Since then, MDA has made it possible for doctors to serve in hospitals in East and West Africa, the Pacific, in refugee camps in Thailand, and in hospitals and clinics in Central and South America. Today, Family Practice Physicians, Dentists, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Surgeons, OBGYNs, and other specialties all have a place in this mission, whether as a long or short term Mission Doctor. Contact the office to learn more about how you can become involved.
