Millions of people suffer with preventable diseases, lower quality of life, and shortened life spans. Together we are doing something about it.
Mission of Healing
Since 1959, Mission Doctors Association has trained, sent and supported Catholic doctors and their families who come from across the United States to serve people of all faiths in some of the most under-served areas of the world. This mission of healing provides direct patient care and training for local professionals striving toward the goal of sustainable health care.
Partnership of Hope
The service of mission doctors would not be possible without your prayerful support. You are a vital part of this mission of healing. Your partnership allows us to respond to the needs of mission hospitals and clinics in Africa and Latin America.
