Health

Many of the first missionaries who were sent by the predecessors of Global Ministries were health professionals. Whether it was an opium cessation clinic in China, a treatment facility for those struggling with leprosy, or rural clinics in the Democratic Republic of the Congo – ensuring access to basic health care has always been a priority of Global Ministries. In far too many places today, medical treatment is seen as a luxury for the rich instead of a basic right for all. To challenge this assumption Global Ministries works closely with community health programs and nursing schools, in addition to sending health professionals.
