We are an organization dedicated to providing medical care to poor areas of the world.  Often, these areas also lack adequate medical personnel to serve the population.  As we also precept for pharmacy students, we take precautions to maintain a safe and healthy environment.  We purposely avoid dangerous countries and are a great place for a first time medical mission tripper to begin.  We go to some unusual places as well and are planning on expanding our mission base.  Currently we go regularly to Western Kenya and Madagascar.  We are making contact with places in Tanzania, Uganda and Peru with hopes of adding these to our regular places to provide ongoing, short term, medical care.  We are a Christian based organization and, as such, have a code of conduct for those coming on the trips.  We believe strongly in protecting oneself against endemic diseases and will provide information regarding necessary precautions.
