AmeriCares donates medical products to qualified U.S. health care professionals who are traveling overseas to provide charitable medical care to some of the neediest and most under-served people in more than 80 countries around the world.


The Medical Outreach teams are supplied with a range of donated medications to treat pain, fever, hypertension, diabetes and other common health concerns that often go untreated in the absence of access to primary health care. In addition, a team may also take topical ointments, vitamins and nutritional supplements as well as supplies for dental and ophthalmic care. For the many surgical teams, AmeriCares provides anesthesia, syringes and a wide range of other surgical products.
