Pharma Hero Charity: International Medical Corps

The Pharma Hero campaign seeks to celebrate the great work of our colleagues in the pharma and biotech industry. We also wanted to do a little good work of our own by making a charitable donation for each Pharma Hero nomination we receive.* Like the Pharma Heroes, these charities are helping to provide support and healing throughout the world. We’re highlighting each charity to help you decide which to choose when you recognize a Pharma Hero.

International Medical Corps

Mission:  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 the quality of life through health interventions and related activities that build local capacity in underserved communities worldwide. By offering training and health care to local populations and medical assistance to people at highest risk, and with the flexibility to respond rapidly to emergency situations, International Medical Corps rehabilitates devastated health care systems and helps bring them back to self-reliance.

Why we chose this charity: A medicine can’t serve any patient without a trained medical professional to diagnose, prescribe and sometimes administer. International Medical Corps delivers life-saving healthcare in the most critical times. Their emergency relief work has directly saved millions of lives, and their mission doesn’t stop when the immediate threat subsides. They work to build health infrastructures that benefit vulnerable populations years after a crisis.

Pharma Hero donations: With just 17% of the donations to date, International Medical Corps could use your support. By recognizing a colleague who you deem a Pharma Hero, you’ll be providing critical care wherever the next emergency happens in the world.
