The Afya Foundation collects unused medical supplies and equipment from throughout the New York metro area and gives them a second life. Domestic regulations require that enormous volumes of supplies must not be reused. As a result they are destined for local landfills. We ship these critical materials to under resourced and compromised health systems all over the globe thereby improving access to healthcare, the quality of care delivered, and the retention of local providers.
Our model recognizes that each hospital, government and clinic faces disparate public health conditions. Relying on a cadre of volunteers to sort and pack rescued supplies in order to ship individually tailored shipments to local partners, Afya provides a forum for local communities to contribute globally. Our capacity to meet immediate humanitarian needs in places devastated by natural disaster, public health crises or international conflicts while simultaneously implementing long-term programs to address chronic health disparities is critical to our future success.
