IMA World Health (IMA) has over 50 years of experience providing people in need with essential medicines and supplies. As part of our health programming, we’ve established a highly functional procurement and distribution system for the provision of needed medicines, equipment and commodities. To date, IMA has distributed over $1 billion worth of critical supplies worldwide.
Since 1960, IMA has received donations of essential medicines and medical supplies from US manufacturers and hospitals to support overseas health care programs. In fiscal year 2011 alone, IMA received more than $58 million worth of pharmaceutical and medical supply donations.
IMA upholds the highest standards for responsible giving of in-kind donations, carefully monitoring the expiration dating and quality of the donation. We respond to the needs of local health care professionals and provide only what is appropriate for the health needs in the recipient country. We adhere to the donation guidelines established by the World Health Organization for international giving, and IMA offers these donated products at significantly reduced prices to our Member agencies, approved partners and volunteer medical mission groups. Products from IMA’s gifts-in-kind program have been sent to over 72 countries around the world.
IMA, in collaboration with its US and overseas partners, assesses the needs of overseas health care facilities and programs to determine the need for medicines, medical supplies and other related items. IMA is licensed for pharmaceutical procurement by the US Drug Enforcement Administration and the State of Maryland. Due to our longstanding partnerships and procurement volume, we are able to purchase medicines and medical products at discounted rates in the US, globally or in the recipient country. IMA is committed to the highest standards, and we always purchase medicines and medical supplies of top quality and long expiration dates.
IMA World Health maintains inventories of donated medicine and supplies that are available to medical mission teams and health professionals traveling on international projects.
