Since February 2017 action medeor is a member of the global alliance “Partnership for Quality Medical Donations” (PQMD).

PQMD is leading the development and championing of high standards in medical supply and service donation. It seeks to enhance access to health care in underserved communities and in areas affected by disaster.

Currently, 21 non-profit and 18 corporate organizations are part of this unique and dynamic alliance. PQMD members focus their broad expertise in the areas of humanitarian assistance, disaster response, health system strengthening, knowledge transfer and innovation. By facilitating collaboration among all members, PQMD seeks to continuously support the delivery of high quality donations of pharmaceuticals, medical equipment and services to communities in need.

The 39 member organizations not only coordinate the transfer of donations in kind within PQMD, but also take part in the development and implementation of high standards regarding the use of donations in kind. The “PQMD Guidelines for Quality Medical Product Donations” are a set of guidelines which are rigorously updated on an annual basis and reflect the collected knowledge of the member organizations.

Before entering the alliance, action medeor has already cooperated with PQMD member organizations such as IMC, IHP and World Vision. With becoming part of PQMD, action medeor aims to establish new partnerships and strengthen the international cooperation concerning donations in kind.
