About us

The International Medical Education Trust 2000 (IMET 2000) was established in year 2000 as a UK registered charity (No: 1081287) to address needs in global healthcare by facilitating:

  • Lifelong learning and continuous professional development (CPD) for all working in the health sector
  • Multidisciplinary teamwork between doctors, nurses, dentists, paramedics, community health workers and allied health professionals
  • More care in the community rather than expensive hospitals
  • Public health awareness and preventive medicine widely disseminated via the revolution in information technology (IT)
  • Putting into practice the ideal of patient-centred learning
  • Much needed improvement in maternal health
  • Scholarships for needy under- and post-graduate students

In the succeeding years, its main global mission has evolved around a core matrix of e-learning and self-directed learning which is accessible and cost effective. It is now also working extensively in mental and physical trauma in children resulting from conflict, severe economic deprivation, torture and abuse. Most of our work has been in Africa, Palestine and Ukraine, and different schemes have been developed and piloted in each to address particular needs. These schemes have been working within three main programmes: INMedS (Palestine, Ukraine); Sponsor A Mum (Senegal); and Medic to Medic (Malawi, Uganda).However, from September 2012, the M2M programme in Malawi and Uganda  was moved out of IMET2000 to form a new charity 'Healthcare for All'. IMET2000 is now focused on its work in Palestine, Lebanon and the Ukraine.
