Disaster Response and Refugee Healthcare
Medical Teams International provides humanitarian response during natural and man-made (conflicts, war, etc.) disasters where needs outstrip the local capacity to respond. Our Humanitarian Assessment and Response teams provide crucial healthcare supplies and support when hurricanes, earthquakes, war, or any number of natural and man-made disasters threaten lives.
Helping the vulnerable survive
In any disaster, there are critical healthcare needs that must be addressed. Poor sanitation and inaccessible healthcare can quickly escalate into outbreaks and staggering levels of suffering. Particularly in countries where health systems were already weak, crises can create a serious lack of care and humanitarian crises.
Disaster Relief: Floods, earthquakes, outbreaks...
Medical Teams International’s Disaster Response program is designed to provide a swift, coordinated disaster recovery plan in a humanitarian crisis situation. Collaborating with local government agencies, we evaluate the disaster impact and coordinate with our standby pool of trained and experienced disaster response volunteers to send humanitarian aid within 48 hours.
Refugee Relief: Providing healthcare in man-made disasters
Violence and war are forcing millions to flee for their lives. With only the clothes on their back, many families must re-start in desperate conditions. Without accessible healthcare, crowded refugee camps can mean disaster for families who have nowhere else to go. The problem is only growing-- there are more displaced people now than every before. Humanitarian response is critical in the face of increased tensions and inadequate healthcare.
