IMA World Health: 60 Years Of Health, Healing And Well-Being

The path to justice requires persistence. IMA World Health has been a persistent voice for the world’s poorest communities for 60 years, ensuring access to quality medical care is available for all. We have learned to take the long view, committing to the generational work that our vision promises:  health, healing and well-being for all.

Former IMA Executive Director Paul Derstine was instrumental in helping IMA World Health evolve from being an agency that supported logistics, to becoming an operational, comprehensive public health agency in its own right. Here, Paul describes the origin and evolution of IMA World Health.
