S&P Global became an AmeriCares Annual Emergency Response Partner in 2013, recognizing that planning and preparation are critical to a swift and effective relief response to a disaster – from earthquakes, typhoons, hurricanes and tornadoes, to disease outbreaks and civil strife. Every day, AmeriCares emergency response team is active around the world and around the clock in all phases of addressing emergencies from monitoring and readiness through response and recovery.
AmeriCares Annual Emergency Response Partners provide reliable support critical to maintaining the strong foundation from which we respond to disaster events. Before they occur, AmeriCares maintains the necessary resources and capabilities to address health and humanitarian needs in disaster situations. These include the ability to conduct in-country assessments, the pre-positioning of emergency medical and relief aid in disaster-prone regions of the world, the maintenance of regional warehouse and distribution hubs, and emergency pharmacy inventory at our headquarters. Together with our in-house expertise in global logistics, emergency medical needs and local health services rehabilitation, these assets enable AmeriCares to respond quickly in the immediate aftermath of a disaster.
As an Annual Emergency Response Partner, S&P Global is helping AmeriCares respond to emergencies without hesitation, and establish an early presence that attracts the partners and resources necessary to sustain a longer, comprehensive response and recovery program.
