“Medicine in Action is an organization which gives voluntary health care to people all over the world. Although their main focus is to treat the poor, they have managed to achieve excellence in the delivery of Health Care Services by meeting the physical, mental and social needs of their patients, in an environment of understanding and sensitivity. This is obvious in the hundreds of patients who have benefited when treated at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
St Joseph’s Hospital
MIA works in both Tanzania and Jamaica, underdeveloped countries struggling to provide health care. In both countries MIA has partnered with local on-the-ground teams. Infant and maternal mortality rates are very high compared to the United States and moderate and extreme poverty exists. In the table below the alarming contrast that exists between the United States and the countries MIA serves is clearly seen.
In Jamaica, Franciscan Ministries organizes the inner city outreach clinics; St. Joseph’s hospital hosts MIA’s surgeries. The majority of cervical cancer screening are conducted at the Port Maria Hospital and the outlying rural clinics.
In Tanzania, MIA established a long- term partnership with International Health Partners (IHP). IHP is a grassroots NGO that is building a hospital in Nyakato, Mwanza on the shores of Lake Victoria. MIA partners with IHP to advise on women’s health issues as they construct their hospital, and to improve women’s health in their community as well. On each of MIA’s medical missions to Tanzania, volunteers take the time to head out to either a local church or mosque to have question and answer sessions with the local women regarding women’s health issues. The education through these sessions is critical because the women’s literacy level is very limited.
