There is an urgent need for donations of medicines and funding following Hurricane Matthew’s catastrophic impact in Haiti.
Initial reports are that clinics are overflowing and a new cholera outbreak threatens to take even more lives. Haiti – one of the world’s poorest countries – has never fully recovered from the earthquake that killed thousands of people in 2010 and the cholera epidemic that followed.
“This is an opportunity to the help those in serious need,” says Denis St-Amour, President of HPIC. “Health Partners International of Canada (HPIC) is capable of rallying large volumes of medicines in response to the needs on the ground.”
The pharmaceutical and healthcare industry in Canada is reviewing inventories and beginning the donation process. Health Partners International of Canada (HPIC) has received firm commitments to date from:
LEO Pharma Canada
HPIC is expecting to equip teams and organizations in the coming days. Every $1 donated to HPIC delivers at least $10 of medicines.
