About Us

The Exchange, Medical Outreach and Americares

About the Medical Outreach Exchange

Volunteer medical teams share a common mission to provide more people with the medicines and health care they need and to strengthen the institutions that serve them.

Americares has supported volunteer medical teams with product donations for three decades. With the Medical Outreach Exchange, we provide tools to implement best practices and a place to connect and learn from each other.

Volunteer health care providers have a profound impact on the productivity and quality of life of the people they care for and collectively create real change in the capacity of local health care systems. Through our Medical Outreach Program, we seek to make this work more effective to the benefit of all. Learn more here.

About Americares Medical Outreach

Americares Medical Outreach donates medicines and medical products to U.S.-based and licensed volunteer medical teams traveling abroad to provide primary care, perform surgeries, respond to emergencies and strengthen local health care capacity. Each year, Americares Medical Outreach supports more than 1,000 volunteer medical trips to approximately 80 countries.

Volunteer health care providers view available inventory and apply online to receive medical products. Once vetted and approved, the request is processed and the donation shipped to the provider’s licensed medical office or facility in the U.S. Volunteer health care providers use the products overseas and submit a required field report with product usage and team activity information upon their return.
