Founded by Medical Surplus Recovery Organizations in 2012, the MedSurplus Alliance (MSA) is the only cross-sector, multidisciplinary alliance working collaboratively to improve access to quality donated medical supplies, equipment, and medicine through program standards, accreditation and initiatives.
By eliminating medical supply stock-outs and creating access to quality supplies, medical equipment, and medicines, we can remove a significant barrier to reducing patient morbidity and mortality in low-income settings.
