More than a Mission Trip
 
A MEDLIFE Mobile Clinic brings free, high-quality healthcare directly to communities who lack access to basic health services. Staffed by local practitioners, clinics offer basic medical treatment and preventative screens and are designed to find patients who are in need of long-term assistance. Volunteers shadow medical professionals, help in the running of the clinic and learn about local medical practices, global medicine and the effect of poverty on health.

BRINGING A CLINIC TO THE POOR

PROVIDING LONG-TERM CARE
 
Any patient who may have a serious or long-term condition are immediately placed in our follow-up care program where they work with one of our field nurses throughout the course of the treatment. Click here to read more about our follow-up care system.

PUTTING EDUCATION FIRST
 
MEDLIFE clinics go beyond treating symptoms; we educate patients on health and self-care topics to raise awareness, break stigmas and provide patients with the tools to lead healthier lives.
 bdifference5 LEARNING ABOUT LOCAL CULTURE THROUGH SERVICE 
 
Volunteers learn about a foreign culture and country through first-hand experience, reflections, and workshops. Volunteers will spend time with patients, community members and medical professionals as well as attend daily night meetings and activities to become more well versed on local and global issues and start on the path to global citizenship.
