MAP Domestic Medicine Program: Improving Access To Medicines In Georgia

MAP Provides Medicines for Healthier Communities in the US

Changing Lives in georgia:
MAP Improves Access to Medicines 

The Need 

Access to medicine and health supplies are a key component of essential health care in any community. 

In the state of Georgia, 1.8 million people live without insurance (nearly 20 percent of the state population) and an additional 1 million people qualify as underinsured.

Many patients are unable to afford a doctor visit or prescription medication and therefore forego these services until become critically sick. Diabetes and hypertension go unchecked until the person collapses. Then they receive medical attention, in the most expensive setting, hospital emergency rooms.

The Solution

To date, MAP has served over 2,000 people in the state of Georgia who are unable to afford medicine and health supplies. MAP International is partnering with 13 healthcare providers and clinics with plans to expand across the state. These clinics improve access to life-changing medicine for people with:

  • Asthma
  • Hypertension
  • Type I & II Diabetes
  • High cholesterol

More than 60% of all patients receiving these medicines have shown an improvement in their disease management.  MAP is also working with free and charitable clinics to provide over-the-counter medications and antibiotics for the treatment of acute illnesses.
