Global Clinic is a non-profit organisation comprising medical and non-medical volunteers based in Singapore.
Since our establishment in 1997, we have been organising medical missions to underserved communities around the world with the purpose of directing our skills, expertise and time to serving those who suffer from a lack of medical care due to poverty or poor access to medical infrastructure.
Global Clinic’s vision is firmly rooted in the concept of sustainability – we seek to ensure that any effort to provide medical services is accompanied by a long-term programme to improve the health and access to medical care of the residents of our partner communities.
As of today, Global Clinic has treated more than 30,000 individuals in 11 countries throughout Asia and Africa.
