Our mission is to advance health and healing to vulnerable and marginalized people the world over.
IMA World Health, a specialist in providing essential healthcare services and medical supplies around the world, is a nonprofit, faith-based organization working to restore health, hope and dignity to those most in need. We work primarily in the developing world, where an estimated 30 to 70 percent of health care is provided by faith-based organizations. IMA is the largest US-based, ecumenical, international health organization, and is widely recognized for its effective and careful use of resources.
Highly Efficient – Efficiency is part of our culture. IMA was named one of Forbes' 20 most efficient charities two years in a row and has received Charity Navigator's highest efficiency ratings five years running.
Expertly Effective – Our programs have become internationally known for creating sustainable long-term health care solutions in areas with little to no existing health care infrastructure.
Faith-Based – IMA is uniquely equipped for our work in the developing world, where 30-70% of health care is provided by faith-based organizations (FBOs). Our partnership with other FBOs, coupled with our close work with governments and other health care partners, gives IMA a unique capacity to make significant impacts.
Since 1960, IMA's programs have reached millions of people in need in many corners of a hurting world, in developing countries and areas ravaged by war, disaster and poverty.
In the past 50 years, IMA has provided more than $1 billion in medicines to over 52 countries and our capabilities continue to expand. Our work is never done; wherever there is disease or disaster, IMA will work to bring hope through health and healing.
IMA is headquartered in the beautiful rolling farmlands of New Windsor, Maryland, USA. We currently have field offices in Tanzania, Haiti, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Southern Sudan, and Kenya.
