Nancy Aossey is President and Chief Executive Officer of the International Medical Corps, an international non-governmental organization dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through medical relief, health care training, and development programs that build self-reliance.

Aossey joined International Medical Corps to head up its efforts in 1986, shortly after its founding in 1984. She went on to establish the organization as a leader in medical crisis response and recovery and helped launch International Medical Corps' early humanitarian activities in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Honduras, Nicaragua, Angola, Somalia, Mozambique, Cambodia, Bosnia, Thailand, Rwanda and Kosovo.
