£250 could provide essential medicines for at least 60 families
More than 24 million people have now been affected by the flooding in Nepal, India and Bangladesh. There is growing concern at the risk of disease caused by polluted flood waters.
IHP is uniquely placed to act when disaster strikes but we need your help. We want to be better prepared to scale up our disaster response efforts in South Asia and other regions. We continue to work in Yemen, where some 5000 per day are being infected by cholera, and have sent over 400,000 treatments already this year to Iraq where the health infrastructure has been decimated in many areas.
In many of these disasters we supply our Essential Health Packs (EHPs). These are filled with a range of essential medicines, such as antibiotics, analgesics and antiparasitics, to support critical primary health care delivery in any setting. They are highly portable so that they can be transported to wherever they might be needed, acting as a mobile pharmacy.
If you represent a pharmaceutical company who can donate product for these packs please contact Adele Paterson at IHP.
