Programs

Since 1954, MAP has shipped over 5 billion dollars worth of medicines around the world, impacting over 1 billion people. MAP played a key role in eradicating Guinea Worm Disease from Cote d'Ivoire along with the Carter Center and UNICEF Cote d'Ivoire. Water and Sanitation | Projects in water and sanitation include Community Led Total Sanitation initiatives, health promoter training, provision of water filters through a sweat equity program, repair and new construction of latrines, wells, pumps, and bathing areas, and water system repair and construction. In 2010 and 2011, MAP distributed 1,149 water filters in 8 countries allowing over 10,000 people to have access to clean water every day. Neglected Tropical Diseases | MAP is committed to fighting Neglected Tropical Diseases in as a part of all our country programs. Diseases include Lymphatic Filariasis (Kenya), Chagas (Bolivia), Buruli Ulcer (Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, and Liberia), Rabies (Bolivia), Trachoma (Kenya), Leprosy (Ghana), and Soil Transmitted Helminthiasis (Cote d'Ivoire, Kenya, Uganda, Indonesia, Ecuador, Bolivia). MAP has experienced recent success in eradicating Guinea Worm disease from Cote d'Ivoire with the help of The Carter Center and UNICEF Cote d'Ivoire. International Health Programs | Each year, MAP provides more than $350 million in vital medical supplies to hundreds of partners operating in underserved regions around the world. Leading companies like Johnson & Johnson, Merck, and Pfizer donate high quality, FDA approved supplies for use in our medicines program. An estimated 10 million people benefit each year from the medicines we deliver. In addition, we work with hundreds of short term medical mission teams and partner agencies to distribute medicines to over 100 countries each year. Organizations such as CARE, World Vision, Partners in Health, International Medical Corps, and Christian Aid Ministries trust MAP to provide medical aid to programs where it is needed most. Maternal and Child Health | MAP International takes a holistic view of Maternal and Child Health. Our programs focus on reproductive health, perinatal care, education, training of health professionals and health promoters, training to prevent child sexual abuse and create safe spaces for children, and support and rehabilitation for victims of sexual abuse. Specific projects currently operate in Kenya, Bolivia, and Ecuador, but maternal and child health is also a strong component of MAP's Total Health Village program which operates in 9 countries worldwide. Disaster Relief | In times of disaster, MAP International provides immediate humanitarian medical aid and relief aid including essential medicines and health care supplies to people left homeless and without access to basic services. From the earliest days of a response, we also begin to focus on helping communities restore and rebuild health systems and lay the groundwork for long-term health development activities.
