International Health Partners

International Health Partners

IHP is Europe’s largest coordinator of donated medicines, providing a professional service to enable healthcare companies and aid agencies to support patients around the world who cannot otherwise access the medicines they need.


IHP co-ordinates the response of the European healthcare industry to major disasters, working closely with the World Health Organisation Health Cluster and leading medical NGOs, to deliver lifesaving treatments immediately after a disaster, and filling gaps in supply during the recovery and reconstruction periods. 


Global Health Programmes

IHP provides on-going medical support in a number of countries around the world that suffer from a chronic lack of access to medicines. Our programmes range from supporting single hospitals, to focusing on specific diseases, and more comprehensive country-wide initiatives that include capacity building. 


Supporting Medics Overseas

Recognising the need to provide a broad range of essential medicines to rural facilities and remote locations around the world, we supply pre-packed kits (Doctors’ Travel Packs) of essential medicines that are highly mobile and can be used by healthcare professionals and medical NGOs to reach almost any location. 

In 2014 IHP was involved in the launch of EURMED – with the objective of ensuring the efficient and effective use of product donations from the European healthcare industry to address the needs of underserved communities around the world.

EURMED Online (an online donation tool) now provides a system for a needs-based allocation of donated product to NGOs serving people in need, in a secure, effective and transparent manner.  The priority is to ensure that all donated medical product is safely and professionally handled and reaches those in need quickly.
