Purpose

As the number one nonprofit provider of donated medicines and supplies, Americares reached 93 countries in FY16 with medicine, medical supplies, support and technical assistance valued at nearly $825 million through our Emergency and Global Health programs in FY16. Through these programs, we worked to save lives and improve health for people affected by poverty or disaster so they can reach their full potential. Through collaboration with our extensive worldwide partner network, we committed nearly $8.1 million of new support to 46 health projects and activities in 27 countries that will directly benefit an estimated 770,000 individuals. In addition, we leveraged more than $794 million worth of donated and procured commodities to support projects and activities and to relieve shortages of medicines and supplies through our health partners, including enough medicines to fill nearly 25 million prescriptions and more than 30 million units of supplies.
