International Health Partners was founded in the UK in 2005 bridge the gap between supply and demand for healthcare products in the aftermath of disaster. Based on a North American model, our primary aim was to provide a coordinated response in Europe to increase access to medicine.  

Today, we change lives. 

We still respond to disasters, but we also support long-term health programmes and provide Essential Health Packs, full of basic medicines, to individual healthcare practitioners running medical outreach. 

We rely on the support of the UK and European healthcare industry, whose companies donate high-quality and long-dated products. We also depend on logistics providers, who help us store products and deliver them at the right time to the people who need them.

We value the alliances and organisations that fund our work. Through our annual Sharing Best Practice Workshop, conference contributions and board membership of the Partnership for Quality Medical Donations (PQMD), we contribute to raising standards for global product donation. 

From a simple idea 15 years ago, we have grown into a trusted global organisation. Overall, we have delivered more than 43 million courses of treatment to 100+ countries. In the last year alone, we sent 4.4 million treatments to 34 countries.

Today, for every £1 donated, we can deliver at least three in-country treatments.
