IMA currently also provides emergency support for improved access to essential primary health care and malaria services.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

IMA's vision is health, healing and well-being for all. We recognize that all people are children of God and deserve access to services that protect and promote their health and dignity. We respect and work with other faiths and many secular groups who share our aim to create a more just and sustainable world. We do not proselytize.

IMA World Health aims to achieve health, healing and well-being for all through a four-part strategy.

Health Systems Strengthening
IMA builds integrated, holistic and sustainable health systems that increase access to quality health care, with an emphasis on vulnerable people.

Partnerships
IMA collaborates with local, national and international partners, especially faith-based networks and organizations, to join and leverage assets, resources, knowledge and voices.

Technical Excellence
IMA designs and implements innovative and effective technical approaches that demonstrate long-term, measurable improvements and impact on individual and community health.

Organizational Health
IMA invests in developing people, partners, continual learning and systems to maximize organizational impact on health care and the systems to sustain those improvements.

IMA World Health began as Interchurch Medical Assistance in 1960. Our nearly 60 year history is based heavily in partnership: with member agencies, with donors, with the people we serve. Everything IMA does, it does in partnership and builds on decades of experience.

Currently, we have extensive presence in six countries where we live out our mandate to bring health, healing and well-being to the world's most vulnerable. Our staff in Haiti, Kenya, Tanzania, Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan and Indonesia feature public health experts who bring the best in science and practice to national and local partners. Our connections with ministries of health, district medical staff and community service organizations and communities of faith ensure we serve the most vulnerable, sustainably. We align our work with national plans and priorities and work to build local capacity that will thrive long after we are gone.

Our aim is to ensure access to quality care for all, especially the most vulnerable. We respect and work with all sorts of faiths and many secular groups who share our aim to create a more just and sustainable world.

IMA World Health programs touched more than 46 million people in the last year, through clinic visits, trainings, awareness campaigns and other programming. Our work has supported significant gains in preventing HIV and AIDS and providing access to treatment, reducing malarial infections and neglected tropical diseases, improving sanitation and hygiene practices and ensuring pregnant women and caregivers of infants and young children have knowledge about and access to proper nutrition.
Sample achievements during our last fiscal year include 14 million treatments for neglected tropical disease in Tanzania and 5.1 million in Haiti; 8.3 million people with improved health care in the Democratic Republic of Congo; and 1.8 million visits to outpatient clinics in the Republic of South Sudan.

As we look to do our part to contribute to the new Sustainable Development Goals through new and expanded efforts, we will continue to strengthen health systems, improve our partnerships, refine our technical acumen and ensure IMA World Health is a soundly-managed organization.
