Healthcare Assistance for Virgin Islanders in Need

Summary

This project continues to support the mission in which PAVI was founded - NO ONE PERSON SHOULD HAVE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN BASIC NEEDS AND THEIR MEDICATIONS. We continue to serve as a safety net for our patients with limited resources for the past 11 years. Since its founding, PVI obtained more than $3.5 million worth of medications for patients. For every dollar donated, we secure four dollars worth of medication. Thank you for your continued support!

Challenge

Healthcare, as we all know can be very costly. Since the 2013 category 5 hurricanes -Irma and Maria- & CO-VID impacts, Virgin Islanders of the territory are still impacted by the aftermath, whether financially or physically. PAVI continues to serve as the safety net for patients indeed, by providing financial assistance in accessing medications. Although we are proud of the success PAVI has made over the years we continue to analyze the needs of those who cannot afford proper healthcare.

Solution

PAVI gives people access to the medications they need to stay healthy. The limited resources of these islands make it critical for people to stay at the lowest level of care for their medical conditions--after the hurricanes, more than ever. Most prescriptions are to treat diabetes, hypertension, high-cholesterol, and asthma. Compliance with prescription medications helps prevent serious complications (heart attacks, stroke, amputations, etc.), improving both individual and community health.

Long-Term Impact

Because the average age of our patients is 60, maintaining health for chronic conditions has a long-lasting impact for the individual--improving quality of life and ability to work and/or be a family caregiver. Compliance with medication helps prevent costly and unpleasant complications. Community health is improved because people with long-term health issues are maintained in outpatient settings--reducing hospital cost and allowing time for the medical infrastructure to be rebuilt and improved.
