Mission

MedShare is dedicated to improving the quality of life of people, communities and our planet by sourcing and directly delivering surplus medical supplies and equipment to communities in need around the world. We serve hospitals and clinics in 117 countries and also provide urgently needed supplies and equipment to healthcare professionals and medical volunteers in the U.S.

Notes from the nonprofit

The COVID-19 pandemic has continued to greatly impact communities here in the U.S. and around the world. In response, MedShare has worked closely with hospitals, community clinics, and other nonprofit organizations to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) and other medical supplies to protect the health care professionals who are fighting COVID-19 on the front lines. Over the last several weeks, we’ve donated nearly 1.3 million units of PPE to over 140 hospitals and clinics in the Atlanta and New York metropolitan areas and the San Francisco Bay Area. In addition, we continue to fulfill international shipments of supplies and equipment as we have inventory and capacity to do so.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. Achieve Greater Recipient Impact: Improve the overall recipient experience and create opportunities for greater impact.
2. Create Capital Efficient Growth: Ensure economic growth in support of MedShare's mission.
3. Ensure Organizational Excellence: Build organization capacity and vitality.

- Develop supply + equipment offerings focused on specific health priorities in each country we serve.
• Provide training + services tailored to specific health priorities w/emphasis on building biomedical efficienty and capacity
•Research MedShare's capacity and expertise in 2 target countries
• Implement technology enhancement to make process user friendly

Our work aligns around four specific programs: Maternal Child Health, Infectious Disease Control and Prevention, Primary Care and Disaster Relief. In addition, our Biomedical Equipment Training and Repair Service works to increase health system's sustainability in-country by providing training to end-users, technicians and others in how to use and repair sophisticated biomedical technology.

1. Strong logistics and operational expertise in the field of medical surplus recovery.
2. Strong biomedical program to ensure that all equipment shipped to recipient hospitals is needed and is fully-functional.
3. Strong relationships with hospital and clinic physicians and staff around the world.
4. Unique online ordering system that allows recipients to order exactly the supplies and equipment they need, rather than just shipping what we have available.
5. Strong partnerships with hundreds of U.S. hospitals and health systems who recycle their unexpired products to MedShare.
6. Strong partnerships with corporate manufacturers who donate medical supplies and equipment.

MedShare has aligned its work around four key programs and one service. They are Maternal and Child Health, Disaster Relief, Primary Care, Infectious Disease Control and Prevention, and Biomedical Equipment Training and Repair Service.

We continue our work in establishing two research studies in Liberia and Nicaragua to gather data on our impact on strengthening health systems. This study will help us to provide solid data to our donors around our impact as well as allowing us to further refine and strengthen our work.
