Anera joins Partnership for Quality Medical Donations
October 31, 2019 | Washington, DC Anera recently joined The Partnership for Quality Medical Donations (PQMD) to become the 43rd member organization of the US-based nonprofit association. PQMD is a global alliance of corporations and nonprofits that champions high standards in medical supply and service donation.
“Anera shares PQMD’s mission of ensuring high standards for donated medicines and improving access to medicine for vulnerable populations,” says Anera President and CEO Sean Carroll.
PQMD guidelines help manage donated medical products, devices and services while enhancing access to health care in underserved communities worldwide. Anera participated on panels at PQMD’s Global Health Policy Forum in Geneva in April and, earlier this month, attended PQMD’s annual meeting in Kansas City.
Since 1968, Anera has delivered $600 million worth of medical and relief supplies to local nonprofits and medical facilities that serve refugees and other disadvantaged populations in the West Bank, Gaza, Jordan and Lebanon. Anera is the only PQMD member working in Palestine.
“PQMD is thrilled to welcome Anera to our organization. Each new member brings a unique perspective to our membership, and we look forward to learning from Anera’s expertise and forging a successful partnership with them,” said Elizabeth “EJ” Ashbourne, executive director of PQMD.
