International Disaster Medical Collaborative

International Campaigns

A medical response to a humanitarian effort intends to assist people who are suffering from the impact of events caused by all-hazards. Using best practices developed in our U.S. model, IDMC is focused on providing support to partner agencies for the provision of medical care to people in need around the world. For responder organizations, IDMC fills requests for field medical equipment and personal protective equipment including hazardous materials gear. Our non-profit organization accepts donations of medical supplies from hospitals, fire departments, manufacturers and others and ship them to partner agencies for their medical care use in theatre, or to hospitals or government agencies responsible for civilian medical aid. In addition, IDMC provides training and education in various forms including the production of learning curriculum and the recruitment of specialty physicians, like toxicology, for telemedical support. International humanitarian medical aid is our newest project and is a work in progress. An additional benefit is that processes, lessons learned, and best practices in our current international effort can be used in our future efforts here in the US.
