Medical Ministry International (MMI)

Med to One partners with Medical Ministry International, the largest short-term medical ministry organization, to offer long term care for those patients identified during MMI's one and two week medical projects.

Medical Ministry International (MMI) is an interdenominational medical mission. They are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with international staff and offices in Texas and Ontario.  

MMI's Mission:  MMI is committed to meet the need for medical care among the world's poor with lasting solutions through excellence in medicine, patient care, and health education. MMI does this by:

- Mobilizing volunteers on one and two week medical projects

- Establishing and equipping permanent medical centers

MMI and Med to One have created a partnership, in a symbiotic relationship that furthers both MMI and Med to One's missions.  MMI hosts over 65 one and two week medical proejcts in over 20 countries, providing medical, dental, and surgical care as well as physical therapy and instruction in health education. Med to One's mission is to support patients with long-term needs identified through clinics such as those hosted by MMI. Med to One's ultimate vision is to support all of the chronic patients identified through MMI's clinics. While MMI does provide long-term care, it does so at specific permanent medical centers, not on a patient-by-patient basis, as Med to One offers.

What does the partnership mean?  For Med to One it means leveraging MMI’s in-country staff and resourcs, and will ensure MMI staff and volunteers refer chronic patients to Med to One, in those locations where Med to One is operational.  For MMI, it means that Med to One will be there to support the chronic patients identified on more of its MMI projects, providing the long-term support for individual patients that MMI is not organized to offer.
