In vulnerable regions, we pre-position emergency medical supplies, help communities reduce risk and prepare for disaster while training health care providers.
In the first hours, our emergency team sets in motion a disaster relief operation uniquely suited for the crisis and conditions on the ground.
We stay in country for months and years, rebuilding hospitals and clinics and addressing targeted health needs of the community and restoring health care access.
