MEDICAL SUPPLIES ARE A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE
THE CHALLENGEEvery year, thousands of medical product donation shipments are sent to developing countries and charitable clinics in the United States; intended to help doctors, nurses and community health workers meet the healthcare needs of patients in their communities. As a result, millions of lives are saved that would have otherwise been lost to preventable diseases.
THE SOLUTIONThe MedSurplus Alliance has created the first comprehensive capacity building program for medical product donation stakeholders.
- STANDARDS – The MedSurplus Alliance Code of Conduct is comprised of voluntary standards aligned with World Health Organization guidelines and developed with the support of national medical product donation experts.
- CAPACITY BUILDING RESOURCES – The Code of Conduct, Toolkit and Accreditation Program offer all stakeholders specific resources to evaluate and improve product donation programs.
- COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE – The MSA has created an open, accessible and affordable medical donation community of practice.
