International Relief Teams is dedicated to providing critical assistance to victims of disaster, poverty, and neglect worldwide and accomplishes its mission through four core activities: Medical Education & Training, Domestic and International Relief, Public Health, and Surgical Outreach. IRT performs its mission by utilizing the volunteer services of highly skilled, licensed and experienced medical, technical and construction specialists, while maintaining a small headquarters staff. IRT focuses on building the capacities and capabilities of local communities and organizations. Rather than establishing field offices, IRT works through, and in collaboration with, community organizations, professional medical societies, and nonprofit organizations in host countries. Since 1988, IRT has provided assistance to 59 countries in Eastern Europe, Central & South America, Asia and Africa.
