AmeriCares has been delivering life-saving medicines and medical supplies to health care providers in India for over 17 years. In that time, we’ve delivered more than $47 million worth of aid through established partnerships with local nongovernmental organizations to ensure our medicines reach the people most in need. We have deepened our commitment to the region in order to help more people live longer, healthier lives.
From preventive care for children to emergency disaster relief for survivors of the Tsunami, floods, monsoons and earthquakes in the region, we are committed to health of India and the surrounding region.
With an office in India, we are achieving our objective to reach more people around the world, in addition to helping more people within India itself. The World Health Organization estimates more than 2 billion people around the world have inadequate access to medicine. Of those, more than one-third (700 million people) live in India. To improve the availability of medicines to indigent communities and disaster prone states in India, AmeriCares is replicating its medical assistance and emergency response programs through our new Mumbai office.
