Afya Foundation

Afya is a unique medical supply recovery organization that collects surplus medical supplies from healthcare centers in the United States and ships these critical materials to the most medically under-resourced parts of the world. Afya is also a first responder to natural disasters and pandemics where and whenever they strike. Our regional network of medical suppliers and volunteers allows Afya to meet immediate humanitarian needs in countries devastated by natural disasters and supports our long-term programs to address chronic health disparities locally in the U.S. and developing nations. By reducing the amount of unused medical supplies generated in the US, Afya promotes environmentally efficient healthcare practices at home while sustaining life abroad.
