IMC helped in 37 countries in 2016. They seek volunteer professionals in several fields of health care, and others with logistical, administrative, and financial experience. Clean water, sanitation, nutrition, and food security are also among their areas of interest.
Some volunteers need to be available within 72 hours for emergency situations. Due to funding and accommodations limitations, they cannot accept all volunteers. Learn more about volunteering at: http://careers.internationalmedicalcorps.org/c
