Today, International Medical Corps provides primary health care services to internally-displaced Pakistanis in the frontier areas, offers comprehensive basic health services to Afghan refugees who remain on the Pakistani side of the border, operates an emergency obstetrics care center in the city of Peshawar and runs water and sanitation facilities in the tribal areas for internally displaced Pakistanis and Afghan refugees.
