AmeriCares is an emergency response and global health organization committed to helping many, more people live longer, healthier lives in the United States and around the world.
We believe that the accessibility and quality of health services—preventative through curative—are of fundamental importance to all people, and are key determinants of their health. Every day, with the support of incredible donors and in close collaboration with many partners, we work to fulfill our mission to improve health outcomes in communities affected by disaster and those with limited resources. We do this by, a) expanding and restoring health services, b) relieving shortages of medicines and supplies, c) providing quality primary care, and d) catalyzing long-term improvements in health care delivery.
AmeriCares accomplishes these objectives through three core programs: Emergency Response & Recovery, Global Medical Assistance and Primary Care. Since 1982, we have delivered $11 billion in humanitarian assistance. – less
