Our mission is to support trainee healthcare workers throughout their education, so that they can perform to the best of their ability. We want to add to the absolute numbers of health workers in training, in order that there are more graduates in countries with critical shortages. We target those who are under represented in the health professions, such as women or those from rural areas. We want to increase the numbers of health workers working in rural areas, so that everyone has equal access to healthcare. We hope to raise awareness of the different conditions facing health professionals worldwide and an appreciation of the global health community.
Medic to Medic sponsors healthcare students who have academic potential, but are in financial need in Malawi and Uganda. With this consistency of income, students are able to focus on their studies until graduation. We add to the number of professionals in training, in countries with critical shortages. To date we have helped over 85 students graduate to become doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, pharmacists and clinical officers in some of the worlds poorest countries.
