AIM Ministry: Healthcare

We long to see healthcare professionals practising, modelling and mentoring competent, compassionate medicine, but doing so in places where they will influence unreached people groups for Christ.

For many years healthcare professionals wishing to be involved in cross-cultural mission in Africa have been encouraged to partner with church health care providers. However, the church/mission hospital paradigm is less applicable these days and alternative models are increasingly appropriate. This might involve partnerships with governments or other NGOs, basic community health work or a variety of creative alternatives. The need for this kind of health ministry is everywhere – we don’t aspire, however, to trying to meet that need anywhere, but more strategically among unreached people (directly or indirectly).

Often it’s more appropriate to go to a place, live there and figure out, in conjunction with the local community, how to be involved after one arrives. The idea that you can take a pre-determined programme or plan and simply implement it may exist in the popular Western mindset (all these needy people need the help that we can offer), but we aspire to more than simply doing things for people and communities.



I am working in Kijabe hospital, using my healthcare skills and reaching out to unreached communities.


Medical electives at Kijabe Hospital

Do you want to use your medical elective to experience what it’s like to use your medical profession on the mission field? Go to Kijabe Hospital in Kenya, and also get exposure to ministry among the unreached people of Northern Kenya – those who have the least opportunity to hear of Jesus.


Join the Neem* team in Chad

Could you use your medical skills to join a team in Chad, working among the unreached M* people? You will show them Jesus’ love as you communicate the gospel with them through your words and through your actions.


There are so many ways you can be a part of reaching Africa's unreached peoples with the good news of Jesus Christ.
