Partners for World Health
Partners for World Health (PWH) is a non-profit 501(c)3 based in South Portland, Maine that is committed to reducing medical waste, improving the quality of healthcare in underserved countries, and educating our local community about global healthcare issues.
We collect medical supplies that healthcare facilities in the U.S. are required to discard and ship them to countries in need. In addition, we organize medical missions to Southeast Asia and Africa for doctors, nurses, and students. While there are other non-profit organizations that send medical supplies to or provide medical care in the developing world, PWH is proud to be the only organization in the U.S. that does both. We strive to follow-up each shipment of medical supplies and equipment with a team of medical personnel. Lastly, we are committed to educating our community members about the importance of recycling and the disparities in healthcare around the world.
