What we aim to solve New!

In the last 15 years there has been a dramatic increase in refugee crises, natural and manmade disasters, injuries from wars and conflicts and overall dehumanizing, mistreatment and polarization of minorities around the globe. These atrocities occur on such frequent basis that public awareness from domestic US news media sources has numbed with decreasing support. In addition, increased outbreaks and epidemics are on the rise as these populations are forced into crowded, unsanitary conditions. With greater population movements to bigger cities, remote regions leave individuals further isolated from services.
Global Outreach Doctors seeks to offer medical and other assistance to these marginalized populations who have little or no access to freedom of movement, sanitary conditions, medicine and medical care, psychosocial services and carring compassionate human services.

Global Outreach Doctors seeks to provide both acute rapid response medical services and long term sustainable global health programs in regions of need. GoDocs rapid response team includes highly trained search and rescue canines and managers along with specialized search and rescue drones and pilots to locate victims quickly.
GoDocs long term goal is provide medical services year round in high need low resource areas in the middle east, Africa, Asia and elsewhere. Currently and in the future, GoDocs offers medical education to nurses and doctors in Africa and the organization proposes to continue these important services in other regions. Empowering local medical providers to enhance their capabilities and services through our education programs creates a long term solution if carefully monitored and resourced.

Global Outreach Doctor's strategies to accomplish our goals include; enhancing our board of directors with highly effective, proven mature individuals; building GoDocs medical staff and operational volunteers to a qualitative and quantitative level that will meet the NGO's goals. GoDocs is engaging with funding opportunities to provide the needed resources to serve the organization's needs.

In the short few years Global Outreach Doctors has been in existence, the NGO has deployed on 22 missions around the globe to refugee crises, war zones, natural disasters and areas of high need and low resource. The NGO's physicians, nurses, paramedics, search and rescue personnel as well as psychosocial teams have served thousands in need. With exceptionally limited funding, GoDocs has managed to provide 97% of its funding to it's programs. The organization is well poised to take advantage of an impressive first few years of missions as well as increased funding and a maturing dedicated team to meet our goals.

Global Outreach Doctors will monitor it's progress in reaching the NGO's goals by carefully measuring the number of individuals it serves in each region. In addition, the NGO will build on the number of locations it serves and will measure patient outcomes based on the organization's services.
