Getting critical medical supplies to the people that need them most is a huge logistical challenge but in places where healthcare is limited, it can change and save lives. That’s why we've been proudly supporting the International Health Partners (IHP) for over 15 years.

As Europe’s largest coordinator of donated healthcare products, the IHP relies on its strong network of healthcare industry donors to rapidly respond to humanitarian disasters, long-term healthcare development projects and short-term medical missions across the world.

We’ve supported requests for help with Ebola for Sierra Leone (2014-15), the earthquake in Nepal (2015) and with Hurricane Matthew in Haiti (2016). In 2019 our donated medicines were provided to communities in the Bahamas, Guatemala, Sierra Leone, Kenya, Lebanon, Tanzania, Nigeria and Uganda. In 2023, the IHP helped provide support to the conflicts in Ukraine, Sudan and the Middle East, flooding distasters in Libya and earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.

We supported the IHP throughout 2023, donating 109,000 units of aid to over 206,000 patients across multiple countries and continents. 

The IHP’s Essential Health Packs are aimed at supporting travelling medical professionals to deliver critical primary healthcare in any setting. Each pre-packed kit contains a range of around 800 treatments including over-the-counter and prescription medicines such as antibiotics, analgesics, anti-inflammatories, anti-fungals and anti-parasitics.

Acting like a mobile pharmacy, the Essential Health Packs are highly portable and enable healthcare professionals to work in places where low stock and intermittent supplies of medicine are all too frequent and where false, counterfeit, or sub-standard medicines may be commonplace. We contribute around 10 different medicinal products towards each pack.
