2010 Winter Newsletter

  2. 2. HEALTH AT HOME MARGARET MOLLOY STRENGTHENING THE NATION’S HEALTHCARE SAFETY NET FOR 20 MILLION PATIENTS SINCE 1948, Direct Relief has provided medicines and medical supplies to improve the health of people in the U.S. and throughout the world. The simple goal of enabling people to live healthy, productive lives—regardless of the circumstances into which they are born or find themselves—is a powerful incentive. It drives Direct Relief’s work here at home, where Direct Relief USA is both the country’s largest nonprofit program providing free prescription medications and the PUERTO RICO only U.S. nonprofit program licensed to do so in all 50 states. More than 59 million people in the U.S. lack health insurance. Every day, more Americans are accessing quality, affordable preventive and primary care at local HAWAII nonprofit community clinics and health centers: the U.S. healthcare safety net. GIVING THANKS Direct Relief USA has delivered free medicines and medical supplies valued at over $225 million to 1,100 safety net clinics and health centers in all 50 states representing 20 million patients. This is made possible only because of the support of 79 healthcare companies, FedEx providing free distribution (5,000 deliveries in 2010), and the generosity of private donors. This is how Direct Relief USA is helping safety net clinics care for their low-income, uninsured patients: SAFETY NET SUPPORT “ IRECT RELIEF IS OF D INCREASING ACCESS TO MEDICATION FOR UNDERSERVED PEOPLE TREMENDOUS HELP TO OUR PATIENTS, EIGHTY-FIVE PERCENT REPLENISHMENT OF WHOM ARE WORKING PROVIDING A RELIABLE, NO-COST SUPPLY OF MEDICATION TO CLINICS POOR AND UNABLE TO OBTAIN MEDICATIONS.

PARTNERSHIPS OF PREVENTION –C DC, 201 0 WITH BD AND ROCHE In the United States, 23 million people—approximately eight percent of the population—have diabetes. Since this most recent economic crisis began, more than 8.2 million people have lost their jobs, and for many their health insurance along with it—455,000 of these people are estimated to have diabetes. To address this growing need, Direct Relief USA partnered with medical companies BD and Roche to launch nationwide programs to assist people with diabetes who have no insurance and are low-income. For patients with diabetes who lack health insurance and access to affordable medical care, obtaining the necessary diabetes testing supplies is a prohibitive expense. The inability to regularly check blood glucose levels could result in a number of serious, sometimes life-threatening, complications, like stroke, heart disease, and kidney disease.
