About Us

Overview

The Peer Medical Foundation is a volunteer youth-led international not-for-profit organization committed to improving health equity, inclusivity, diversity, and racial justice in medicine.

We support marginalized patient populations (Migrants, 2SLGBTQIA+, BIPOC & more) through health advocacy, research, and education and aim to improve the health experiences of vulnerable individuals in our communities. Our workshops and resources for medical students, health providers, patients and the public aim to increase awareness of the inequities that exist in healthcare around the world and ways to address them.

At PMF, we make it our responsibility to create an equitable and safe space for all people by ensuring that our work supports and amplifies all races, ethnicities, religions, gender identities, sexual orientations, socio-economic statuses, abilities, and more.

Our Mission

Our mission is to serve humanity through our endeavours of health advocacy, education, research and shared experiences as a community of healthcare professionals within the clinic and beyond.

We are dedicated to forwarding the goals of inclusivity, diversity and racial justice in medicine. We strive to foster an environment of inclusivity for historically underrepresented groups and firmly believe that it is our responsibility as healthcare professionals to create a safe space for people and patients from different backgrounds, color, beliefs, religions, nationalities, socio-economic status and more.

We, at the Peer Med Foundation strongly support black, indigenous and people of color (BIPOC), lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (or queer)(2SLGBTQ+) persons.

We have a zero tolerance policy towards racist, homophobic, transphobic, sexist, and discriminatory attitudes and pledge to actively engage the community through outreach and to provide a platform for diverse voices to be heard, educated and empowered.
