Health & Medical Ministries

World Medical Mission

World Medical Mission places volunteer Christian physicians, dentists, and other medical personnel in mission hospitals and clinics around the world. We also staff a biomedical department and warehouse that provides critically needed equipment and supplies to medical mission facilities. More 

Cataract & Cleft Lip Surgeries

In many countries around the world, adults suffer from cataracts that actually cause blindness. Children with cleft lips are also abused and shunned by society. Samaritan’s Purse sends volunteer medical teams to perform both cataract and cleft lip and palate surgeries for patients of all ages, while sharing the Good News of Christ’s eternal triumph over darkness.

Epidemic Diseases Prevention

Samaritan's Purse fights malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and other epidemic diseases through medical care, health services, hygiene projects, and preventative education. More 

Prenatal & Maternity Care

Obstetric supplies, medicine, vitamins, and specialized training are among the ways we improve the wellbeing of pregnant women and mothers of newborns in remote villages and impoverished communities. This fills a critical gap in healthcare, provides peace of mind for young mothers, and helps save the lives of women and babies. More 

Medical Equipment & Supplies

Samaritan’s Purse supplies surgical equipment, oxygen concentrators, X-ray systems, patient monitors, stethoscopes, ECG recorders, and other items to parts of the world where quality medical provisions are in short supply. Our technicians install the equipment and teach local staff how to use the machines. More 

Community Health

We help prevent suffering and death from easily preventable diseases by providing medicine, medical equipment, supplies, training and support for community healthcare workers in rural communities that have limited access to health care. More
