THE ISSUE

Substantial amounts of unused medical supplies are thrown away from emergency departments, urgent care centers, and especially operating rooms every day, which have negative financial and environmental consequences.

 

OUR SOLUTION NO. 1

We collaborate with surgeons to reduce unnecessary medical supplies in surgical procedures. Then, we utilize a portion of the saved costs to fund charitable clinics so that they can purchase medications and medical supplies to treat underserved patients.

 

OUR SOLUTION NO. 2

 

While unusable in the U.S., unused and uncontaminated medical supplies such as towels, gauze sponges, and suture kits are sorted and shipped overseas to hospitals in underprivileged countries.

This program tackles the shortages of medical supplies faced by underserved hospitals in Africa and Central and South America.

Like the REMEDY program at Yale University, SHARE at Johns Hopkins University, and the Afya Foundation in NYC, we seek to give these unused supplies a new opportunity to heal those in need.
