How MAP Helps


How MAP gets critically needed medicines to those who need them the most

When our relief partners see MAP’s distinctive blue wrap, they know that they are receiving the highest quality, World Health Organization-approved medicines that include fever reducers, antibiotics, prenatal vitamins and a host of other medicines and health supplies to serve the world in need.

Each year, MAP International donates more than $500 million dollars’ worth of life-changing, critically needed medicines and health supplies to treat more than 13 million of the world’s poorest people in approximately 100 countries.

Here are the steps we take:

1
Acquiring medicines and health supplies

Generous pharmaceutical companies make donations of products (GIK) and MAP also purchases products to supplement GIK.

2
Organizing products

As a Foreign Trade Zone with U.S. Customs, which allows us to purchase and import products without duties, medicines and health supplies are shipped to MAP’s massive 40,000 sq. ft. distribution center in Brunswick, Georgia where they are inventoried and stored.

3
Serving partners throughout the world

MAP works in partnership with domestic and international non-governmental organizations to determine the ideal mix of products they need to serve people who do not have access to medicine.

4
Distributing life-changing products

MAP combines the ideal mix of medicines and health supplies and ships them to our global partners on the ground from our distribution center, Europe or Asia by air or sea freight.

5
Impacting people in need

By following this highly effective process, MAP is able to get medicines and health supplies to millions of people who would otherwise not have access and serves approximately 100 countries each year in both disaster relief responses and sustainable programs.

By focusing on our unique approach to getting medicines and supplies to where they are needed most, MAP International has recently had an amazing impact.
