Anthem has been a partner to Americares in our emergency responses since the earthquake in South Asia in 2005. The company has helped us to deliver health and opportunity to people and communities affected by some of the most severe disasters of the past decade.
Side by Side, Responding to Those in Need
Over the years, Anthem has been a true partner to Americares. The company and its employees have been by our side as we launched several response efforts, including the South Asia Earthquake in 2005, the China earthquake in 2008, the Pacific earthquake and tsunami in 2011, Hurricane Sandy in 2012 and, most recently, Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. Anthem’s membership in the AERP provides a platform for action and impact, promoting the health and safety of people worldwide.
Partner in Emergency Response
Anthem is an Americares Emergency Response Partner, providing key resources that allow us to maintain a response platform of medicines, supplies and people. Thanks to Anthem and the other members of the AERP, when disasters strike, Americares can launch robust responses at a moment’s notice, delivering critical medicines and emergency supplies virtually anywhere in the world.
