About IHP

IHP’s vision is to see a world in which all suffering due to lack of healthcare is eradicated. Our Christian faith underpins all that we do. It motivates us to care for those in need, and give our best in all circumstances, as an expression of God's love. We serve the poor in health without regard for ethnic or religious background, focusing on where the need is greatest. 

In the last three years, IHP have supported over 54 million patients and vulnerable communities around the world – places such as Yemen, Ukraine and Gaza. We’ve sent medicine worth well over £56 million, changing lives and impacting futures. We run multiple partnerships to support this work – with pharmaceutical companies who donate medicines, our logistics partners who help us warehouse and ship the medicines overseas and finally our valued NGO partners and individual medics delivering healthcare to those who need it.  Together these partnerships enable medicines to reach those in need.
