Preach and Heal -- IMB Medical Missions

IMB's (International Mission Board) mission is to make disciples of all peoples in fulfillment of the Great Commission found in Matthew 28:18-20.
Over 6,000 people groups - 1.7 billion people - still live with little or no access to the Gospel.
IMB is an entity of the Southern Baptist Convention, the USA's largest evangelical denomination, claiming more than 40,000 churches with nearly 16 million members.

2.7 billion people do not have basic sanitation. Almost half of deaths among the poor are caused by preventable diseases. IMB missionaries helps meet the world's health needs by providing care for the sick and suffering. Last year 1.5 million people received healthcare and were shown Christ's love through doctors, nurses and other IMB healthcare professionals. They do this because Christ commanded us to preach and heal.
