INMED, India, and the Emmanuel Hospitals

September 18th, 2020 by INMED

 

Emmanuel Hospital Association, EHA, is a network of 21 hospitals and 27 community health projects in northern and central India committed to caring for poor communities irrespective of caste, creed or race. Even today, a high proportion of India’s population continues to suffer from preventable infections, tuberculosis, malaria, cholera, malnutrition, and pregnancy-childbirth related complications. EHA provides a full range of clinical care, including obstetrics & gynecology, ophthalmology, pediatrics, general surgery, urology, and general & family medicine.

 

Since 2006, EHA has hosted INMED Learners for supervised service-learning experience in India focusing on medicine, nursing, physiotherapy, pharmacy, and public health. Some of these INMED Graduates continue serving in similar low-resource, cross-cultural locales today.

 

New in Fall 2020, EHA physicians, nurses, and public health specialists, are now taking part in INMED Professional Certificate Courses. This is possible by a generous donation from the home school education publishing industry, and results in Indian healthcare personnel sharpening their skills to provide even better care for their countrymen.
