Mountain Medics International projects are focused on improving the health and quality of life of mountain communities that provide a home to some of our world's poorest and underserved populations.
In developing areas that suffer from extreme poverty, lack of basic nourishment or hygiene, health means more than just medicine. At MMI, we aim to promote all-around healthful change and try understand the root causes of ailments we encounter. We take special sensitivity to cultures and traditions where we work and always secure permission from local and national governments before starting any project. Where we lack expertise, we look to our partners.
Our projects are a success because of you. We do the coordination and let you put your skills to work, whether you are a doctor, nurse, dentist, optometrist, engineer, software consultant or just like hiking in the mountains, learning from other cultures, or giving back through service. Take a look at our current projects and how you can get involved!
