Ready, Respond, Recover

Health is On the Way

For nearly 40 years, Americares has helped communities prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters in the U.S. and around the world. Our emergency response experts are among the first to respond and stay as long as needed, helping to restore health services for survivors. Each year, we respond to an average of 30 natural disasters and humanitarian crises, establish long-term recovery projects and bring disaster preparedness programs to vulnerable communities.

Become a Partner

Americares Emergency Response Partners (AERP) build the foundation from which our responses are launched. Their annual commitment provides a reliable stream of flexible funding, which is critical to maintaining a constant state of readiness and launching robust responses to emergencies worldwide. By supporting the core, underlying capabilities of our emergency response program, AERP members play a part in funding every Americares emergency response, helping to save lives around the world.

Emergency Response Partner Impact

AERP funds enable active response preparation before disaster strikes and immediate response when it does. As an AERP member, you help:

  • Maintain an emergency inventory of medicine for rapid deployment
  • Preposition medical and relief supplies in disaster-prone countries
  • Maintain an international roster of on-call disaster response experts
  • Monitor disasters around the world as they unfold
  • Conduct needs assessments with health centers and government agencies
  • Respond to large disasters before incident-specific funding is received
  • Respond to hidden disasters that lack media attention or dedicated funds but affect millions

Americares Emergency Programs empower communities and frontline health workers across the continuum of disaster readiness, response and recovery.
