Each year, millions of people in economically developing countries, and in our own communities, go without proper medical care due to a lack of medical resources. Because of this, many injuries and diseases that should not be life threatening, or even serious, cause death, disability and suffering. At the same time, the U.S. health care system discards over $6.5 billion worth of medical supplies and equipment each year because of procedural excess, regulatory requirements or production overages. A large portion of these items could be used to save lives. However, the vast majority of this surplus, more than two million tons of medical products, goes into landfills or is incinerated.
Mission: Delivering Health and Hope to the World. MedShare, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, provides vital medical supplies and equipment to clinics in our local community and to economically developing countries.
