Healing Lives... Transforming Communities

At Medical Ambassadors International we build relationships with the world’s most vulnerable people and together we work to heal communities both physically and spiritually.

Briefly About Us

Medical Ambassadors International is equipping communities through Christ-centered health and development.

Meet MAI's President

One of the most respected people in the area of Christian community development, Dr. Ravi Jayakaran, is Medical Ambassadors’ President.
Dr. Ravi Jayakaran has well over three decades of experience leading International poverty reduction and strategic development programs. He has been the Global Director of Community Transformations for e3 Partners/I am Second, as well as the Catalyst for Integral Missions for the Lausanne Movement.

Our Approach

For 35 years, Medical Ambassadors International has been working to heal communities and transform lives.

Jesus’ ministry on earth revealed that he cares for the whole person. He was moved by people’s spiritual and physical pain. At Medical Ambassadors International, we strive to follow the example Jesus set for holistic healing.

We use a development process called Community Health Evangelism (CHE) that addresses the needs of the whole person - physical, spiritual, emotional, and social.

By using CHE, Medical Ambassadors is equipping individuals to be independent workers and evangelists in their own communities.

Where We Work

God's work through Medical Ambassadors International has multiplied around the world for more than 30 years.

Our Programs

We have a variety of focus areas including Women's Cycle of Life, Children's CHE, CHE for the Disabled, and Microenterprise.

Community Health Evangelism

CHE is a strategy for individual and community development through training that brings physical and spiritual change.
