Program Overview

Poised and Prepared to Respond

In the aftermath of a disaster, high on the priority list are food, shelter, medical care and clothing. MedShare’s Disaster Relief Program focuses on:

  • Coordinating with our partners to assess how and when we can best support the health and humanitarian needs of impacted communities as we remain committed to the humanitarian principles of humanity, neutrality, impartiality and independence.
  • Sourcing immediate needs from our product donor partners
  • Coordinating and expediting shipments of critical supplies with our logistics partners
  • Provisioning medical mission team volunteers as they travel to the region to provide aid
  • Continuing support after the initial response to aid in rebuilding health systems in areas devastated by disaster.

Program Impact

Disaster Relief

Many health systems affected by natural disasters already have difficulty reaching patients in rural locations, and the infrastructure that was once in place may no longer function properly, creating bottlenecks for humanitarian aid delivery.

Being that we are in a unique position to equip first responders in the immediate aftermath of a natural disaster and partner with local institutions and governments, MedShare can get humanitarian aid to the front lines quickly to help the affected communities increase their ability to treat more patients. In addition, we can effectively support long-term recovery.
