Medical mission teams are serving the developing world in a greater capacity than ever before (Maki, Qualls, White Kleefield & Crone, 2008). Some of the greatest challenges in the organization and execution of a medical mission lie with the identification of available resources (Schaefer, 2008). With an estimated $250 million dollars spent each year on short-term medical missions (STMMs), critics have based objections on the opinion that money and donations would be better utilized by the target communities themselves (Maki, Qualls, White, Kleefield & Crone, 2008). This ideology implies that the recipients have adequately trained professionals to provide care but lack resources (Maki et al). Though this is likely not the case, little doubt exists that challenges can threaten the efficiency and effectiveness of a global medical outreach. Reducing the challenges in STMMs requires careful preparation (Walsh, 2004). Using a consistent method to organize and develop an outreach would likely reduce the challenges in the mobilization and execution of an efficacious and population-focused outreach. With this in mind, an evidence based toolkit of resources was developed to serve as a framework for an outreach and focused on preparing team members physically culturally, educationally and professionally.
