Before a word is on my tongue
you know it completely, O LORD.
Psalm 139:4

80% of deaths in developing countries are caused by diseases that can easily be prevented. Due to the lack of knowledge of basic health care practices, these areas remain in utter hopelessness and desperation.

IPHC aims to “Bring healing and empower people” in these communities.

This six month course is designed to train and equip those with or without prior medical training with knowledge on disease prevention and community health education. Curative skills are also taught.

Lecture phase consists of 12 weeks of intensive study, reading and formulation of lesson plans.

Outreach is another 12 weeks of  emmersing in locations where communities have less access to healthcare.
