What is IMANA?

We provide professional networking opportunities for healthcare practitioners. We act as a resource for educational institutions and medical professionals who want to know more about how to best serve their Muslim patients. We provide networking and mentoring for medical students for their schooling or medical career choices. We have active medical relief programs and emergency relief efforts to respond to disasters. We help build healthcare capacity and facilitate medical knowledge transfer around the world.

IMANA’s Climate Initiative

The climate crisis is the largest public health emergency in human history. Overconsumption, largely driven by the wealthiest nations, is responsible for shifting ecosystems and the warming of our planet. As medical professionals inspired by our Islamic faith, we seek to address the threats faced by millions as a result of climate change.

We have a moral imperative as Muslim public health professionals to take immediate action, and we are committed to dedicating significant resources toward averting the worst impacts of the ongoing climate crisis.

Shaping Healthcare
We’re committed to creating opportunities to enrich and expand the perspectives of those who are both currently in and those who will be the future of healthcare. IMANA’s Mentorship Program provides a safe place to create valuable connections and share knowledge regardless of where you are in your career journey. Additionally, our Scholarship Program annually provides financial assistance to full-time students pursuing a career in the fields of medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, and allied health.

Creating Healthcare Access
IMANA’s Grants Program operates with the belief that quality healthcare should be accessible to all. Hence, we provide grants to healthcare-focused organizations and free clinics to promote capacity building, networking, acute care for the uninsured individuals and educational initiatives, through our Endowment Fund. Moreover, this fund also supports the placement of Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) in places of worship to increase heart disease awareness and safety.



IMANA Medical Relief is dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through disaster response, providing basic health care to underserved communities, and developing programs to transfer knowledge to affected communities. Our missions have provided timely and effective aid for people throughout the world. IMR provides a platform for physicians and allied health care professionals to participate in medical relief activities in various projects.
