International Medical Corps is a global humanitarian nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through health care training and relief and development programs.
Established in 1984 by volunteer doctors and nurses, International Medical Corps is a private, voluntary, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization.

International Medical Corps is responding to the crisis in Northern Mali since 2013. In response to an outbreak of violence in 2013, International Medical Corps has been working in the most seriously affected communities in Timbuktu and Gourma-Rharous districts with programs focused on health, nutrition and protection. While the security situation remains volatile in the whole country, International Medical Corps is supporting the Malian government in improving and strengthening the health systems through capacity building, infrastructure and workforce development, and technical assistance. Since 2018, International Medical Corps has extended its interventions in Segou region by integrating reproductive health, nutrition and protection/GBV services to the multi-year epidemiological surveillance program implemented between September 2015 and March 2019. Currently, International Medical Corps is seeking to transition from emergency to sustainable longer term development programming in Mali while responding to any short term humanitarian crisis.
