Medical Imaging Partnership

Mission

Medical Imaging Partnership exists to provide access to equipment, expertise, training, staff, funding, and encouragement to local organizations in developing countries with special emphasis on Africa and Latin America. Our goal is to provide target countries with the means to engage in sustainable radiology practices and offer on-going high-quality diagnostic and interventional radiology services.

Vision

Target countries will have sustainable radiology practices with equipment, training, staff, and funding sufficient to provide on-going diagnostic and interventional radiology services with diagnostic capability at or above the median quality level of the closest developed countries in their region (QUALITY). Target countries will provide diagnostic radiology services with equal skill and access to classes and races of people that reflect the general population statistics of the area in which they serve (ACCESS TO CARE).

Long Term Strategy

Medical Imaging Partnership will pursue these ends through a strategy of investment in long-term relationships, preferring engagements that span periods of years more than a short-term project orientation. Medical Imaging Partnership may pursue some short-term projects opportunistically but will prefer long-term engagements in most cases.

Other Activities

Medical Imaging Partnership will identify target country champions and volunteer radiology professionals (clinical or industry experience) who will be the primary liaisons between Medical Imaging Partnership and the target country organization and staff. These individuals will serve as friends, advocates, and coaches, matching Medical Imaging Partnership resources with target country needs. Medical Imaging Partnership nurtures relationships with donors of funds and equipment and recruits and trains volunteers.
