Program areas at Map International
Medicine and Health Supplies - More than 20 million people were provided life-changing medicines and health supplies by MAP International in 2020. Working with 30 major partners, MAP provided medicines and health supplies in 86 countries. MAP International continued to grow and invest in its newer programs, including the Bringing Children Health (BCH) initiative and the Domestic Medicines Program (DMP). MAP expanded BCH to increase access to pediatric antibiotics to more partners. In 2020, more than 180 partners were impacted through this program. MAP's DMP also grew in 2020, reaching more than 17,000 people. In response to the pandemic, MAP worked with 24 clinics (located in GA, VA, and IL) to ensure that healthcare workers had access to critical PPE to continue care and serve as testing and vaccination sites.
Disaster Relief - MAP responded to several disaster and relief efforts in 2020, including Hurricane Dorian, Venezuelan Refugee Crisis, US and Mexico Border Crisis, Tennessee Tornadoes, Puerto Rico Earthquake, Philippines Disasters, COVID-19, Beirut Explosion, Iowa Derecho, Hurricane Laura, and Hurricane Sally. The Organization rushed over 42 thousand Health Kits to help treat injured and displaced people and provided over 4 million people with lifesaving medicines and personal protective equipment to fight COVID-19.
Community Health Development - In 2020, MAP's Community Health Development Programs reached more than 15,000 people across Bolivia, Liberia, and Indonesia. In collaboration with local partners in these countries, MAP worked to improve health conditions through a robust mobile healthcare clinic (Indonesia), nutrition, immunization and vitamin provision for mothers and children (Bolivia), screening and medical care for Chagas disease (Bolivia), and access to clean water for wound care related to Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) and health protection (Liberia). MAP's Community Health Development efforts build on existing local capacity to improve healthcare access and quality of care for vulnerable populations.
