About Us

Building tools for people who care.

Medic builds world-class, open-source software that supports health workers delivering equitable care that reaches everyone. Human-centered at our core, we value creativity, initiative, collaboration, and trust. Our global team of innovators is 90+ strong, dispersed across more than 14 countries, 32 cities, and all time zones. We create resources, build documentation, and offer support to a growing community of partners and builders working to improve health in the hardest-to-reach communities.

We are part of a global movement advancing health for all.

Medic serves as the technical steward and a core contributor to the Community Health Toolkit (CHT), an open-source platform that supports health workers as they provide essential care in their own communities. We are part of a movement for global health equity aimed at changing how health systems work and how technology powers those systems.

Mission

Advance good health, human flourishing, and equitable care for and with the hardest-to-reach communities. We build and apply open-source digital tools that help health workers deliver just, quality care to their neighbors and community.

Vision

We envision a more just world in which health workers are supported as they provide care for their communities, where universal health coverage is a reality, and health is a secured human right – for everyone, everywhere, always.
