Medical Teams Abroad
The Medical Teams Abroad (MTA) program works at the invitation of the host country. Surgical Teams work in the local hospitals and clinics along with the local healthcare providers to provide the surgical services not available in-country and to train local health care professionals in new medical techniques for sustainability of services.
Surgical Teams include orthopedic; podiatry; ENT (ear, nose, & throat); cleft lip and palate; burns; urology; oncology; neurosurgery; plastics and reconstruction; and ophthalmology.
Non-Surgical Teams provide children with access to donated health care and resources. Non-Surgical Teams include audiology; dental; dermatology; speech therapy pathology; family medical; educational; pre-surgical screenings; and adaptive equipment.
The International Inbound (IIB) program is our founding program. Children from around the world are referred to HTC when it is determined that their medical conditions cannot be treated in their home countries. HTC works with international partners, hospitals, doctors, and volunteer host families to bring the children to the US for donated medical care. IIB currently accepts a few patients annually, on a case by case basis, pending available resources.
Local / US Based
Our Local / US Based programs assist children here in the US to acquire medical care, medicines, equipment, and other related needs that fall through the cracks of our existing insurance and social services programs.
Special Projects occur both locally and globally to meet the health care needs for children and their families in a holistic approach.
Special Projects include donations of medical equipment and supplies; construction of medical clinics; renovations in hospitals; sponsorships for camp; awareness events; nutrition support; and water projects.
International Medical Assistance
The International Medical Assistance Program (IMAP) uses collaborative contacts to help find medical care for a child in a country closer to where he/she lives.
