Local Medical Training

As well as completing thousands of urgent operations in every country we visit, Mercy Ships also works closely with host nations to improve the way healthcare is delivered across the country, by training and mentoring local medical staff, and renovating hospitals and clinics.

Through this medical capacity building programme, Mercy Ships is working to leave a legacy that lasts – providing essential medical facilities and equipment, sharing expertise and teaching the teachers, and building healthcare strategies with governments.
