MedShare bridges the gap between surplus and need to improve healthcare and the environment through the efficient recovery and redistribution of surplus medical supplies and equipment to those most in need. MedShare collects surplus medical supplies and equipment from hospitals, distributors and manufacturers, and then redistribute it to qualified healthcare facilities in the developing world. MedShare also outfits medical missions and safety net clinics in both the U.S. and abroad. MedShare's shipments save lives and improve access to quality healthcare in some of the most remote, impoverished places in the world. To date, the organization has shipped to 88 economically developing countries with plans to ship to many more.
