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 supplies that improve local health systems.
Afya invites healthcare practitioners and administrators to identify medical supplies and equipment they need to deliver care. The life-saving supplies are sorted and packed with care from Afya’s warehouse in Yonkers, NY.
Every medical supply project is unique, as each facility has different and specific needs.
We recognize that a variety of products are needed to improve access and care and do our best to respond to comprehensive requests.
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.
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. Afya exists to support each organization’s ability to deliver healthcare.
