Why Direct Relief is Investing $40 Million to Strengthen the Humanitarian Supply Chain for Medicine

Oct 5, 2016

Sixty tons of medicine and medical supplies arrive via FedEx in Nepal in 2015 after an earthquake devastated the region.

Delivering life-saving medical aid to those who need it most creates a complicated logistical challenge.  Moving medicines and equipment over state lines and international borders present hurdles few organizations can overcome, even while the global need for such supplies grows.

Meeting that need is at the heart of Direct Relief’s mission, and the California-based nonprofit is the first and only humanitarian aid organization to be FDA-registered as a wholesale drug distributor and is licensed to distribute prescription drugs into all 50 states. The organization also distributes to 70 countries around the world.

To keep up with global demand and more rigorous oversight on prescription drugs, the organization broke ground Thursday on what will be the largest distribution hub for humanitarian medical aid in the United States.
