The Need


2 Billion people don’t have access to basic medicines

Somewhere in the world right now, a child is suffering needlessly while a parent is watching helplessly… all because they don’t have access to the a few dollars’ worth of
medicine that could save their lives.

For nearly two billion people living in extreme poverty in the developing world, access to medicines that we take for granted in the West – like aspirin for a fever or antibiotics for a child’s pneumonia – are simply unattainable. MAP works tirelessly to get life-changing medicines and health supplies to millions of sick and suffering.
