"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. Its mission is to improve quality of life through health interventions and related activities that build local capacity in underserved communities worldwide. International Medical Corps' work in the region began in 2003 and includes rapid emergency response, health systems strengthening and service provision, mental health and psychosocial assistance, maternal and child health, protection, women's empowerment, community development, and water, sanitation, and hygiene. A wide network of long-standing relationships with local partners and government ministries is a key feature of International Medical Corps' work in the region, which has rapidly expanded since the initial start of activities in Iraq to include Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Gaza, Libya, Tunisia, Turkey, and Yemen.
International Medical Corps began its operations in Lebanon during the summer 2006 war and played an integral role in the provision of emergency relief to conflict-affected populations across Lebanon.
