About Medical Teams International

Medical Teams International provides medical and dental care, humanitarian aid, and holistic development programs to all people in need, regardless of religion, nationality, sex, or race.

We respond to disasters around the world—and here at home—by sending teams of volunteer medical professionals and medical supplies to care for the sick and injured. We also mobilize long-term health promotion initiatives, collaborating with established partners within each community to ensure that our programs have a sustainable impact.

We see human suffering as a call – not just to open our hearts, but to move our feet. We are compelled by our Christian faith into action – a team, guided by compassion and magnified by expertise. We are committed to rise, mobilize, and make a difference.

Our Goal

To save and/or improve the lives of over 5.5 million of the world's most suffering people by the year 2020.

What Makes MTI Unique?

Unlike other humanitarian aid organizations, our work is supported by volunteers and leveraged by in-country partners to deliver more care and more humanitarian aid per donation dollar.

Our volunteer opportunities are typically short-term engagements, rather than those offered by others that span six months or more. This gives highly skilled professionals the ability to integrate volunteering into their busy careers. Volunteers with Medical Teams International work across a variety of functions and require specific qualifications as a result. Volunteer teams include: disaster response, community development, medical & dental, and work teams. For every MTI staff member, there are approximately 4 volunteers.
