Afya’s core mission is to improve healthcare delivery in underserved communities around the world. Afya accomplishes this goal by coordinating with local medical professionals on the ground and facilitating customized shipments of medical supplies and equipment that improve local health systems.
Afya invites healthcare practitioners and administrators to identify medical supplies and equipment they need. After an application is submitted, Afya can determine the recovery fee. Then, the requested supplies and equipment are sorted, packed, and shipped from Afya’s warehouse in Yonkers, New York.
Every medical supply project is unique, as each facility has different and specific needs.
Our biomedical department enables us to improve the lifespan of donated equipment. All biomedical equipment and instrumentation must pass AAMI, BSI, WHO and FDA standards before it leaves the Afya warehouse.
The Recovery fee
Recipients submit a recovery fee for their project which covers a portion of the total costs to Afya of rescuing, testing, sorting, warehousing, packing and delivering a custom shipment. The model is cost-effective and helps those in resource-poor areas access supplies and equipment that would otherwise be unaffordable. Our staff works closely with partners abroad, every step of the way.
Our updated pricing structure is as follows:
- Consumable/Durable supplies priced at 60% of Fair Market Value plus shipping
- Biomedical/Surgical supplies priced at Fair Market Value plus shipping
- PPE priced at Fair Market Value plus 15% procurement fee plus shipping
Orders for 20 and 40 foot containers will receive discounted rates. We have several options for shipments of different sizes.
