Mission: More than 10 million children die each year because of diseases such as diarrhea, measles, malaria and pneumonia. Nearly 4 million infants die each year before they are even a month old. And in Africa, disease kills at least one child every 30 seconds. Many of these diseases are easily prevented or treated with basic medication. But far too often, such medication is simply not available.For more than half a century, MAP International has promoted the Total Health of the world''s poor by working to provide essential medicines, prevent and eradicate disease, and promote community health development.

Professional with expertise in this field
Over 40 years ago, MAP International helped me do an internship at a mission hospital in Asia. That experience paved the way for my life's work. I recently retired as a medical missionary after 38 years in Asia. During that time, MAP International provided us with affordable medicines and supplies. They continue to provide humanitarian help all over the world. They were there during the Ebola outbreak in Africa; earthquakes and tsunamis; and refugee crises. Thank you MAP International.
