REMEDY at Duke

  1. 1. REMEDY at Duke Supply Request Application About REMEDY at Duke: REMEDY at Duke is a volunteer program of Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, organized to recover usable surplus single-use medical supplies and distribute them via Duke affiliated projects to areas of need overseas ( The program is modeled after REMEDY at Yale University and is carried out by Duke students and staff volunteers. REMEDY partners with the Duke Global Health Institute’s Duke PLUS program, which coordinates the donation of surplus durable equipment, such as monitors and machines that have been removed from service at Duke Hospital. For more information about Duke PLUS go to or email: What REMEDY at Duke can provide: REMEDY at Duke collects mostly single-use, disposable items (see list below). We do not collect medications, IV solutions or other perishable items. Priority for donations is given to Duke-affiliated projects; however, non-profit 501(c)3 organizations unaffiliated with Duke University who provide volunteer medical assistance overseas may also request medical supplies from the REMEDY program. Donations of supplies are subject to availability. The receiving organization must submit this completed information sheet as well as a copy of its 501(c)3 certificate. Receiving organizations are responsible for the loading and transportation of supplies from the Duke University storage site. Although REMEDY at Duke makes all efforts to donate supplies that are usable, clean, and unexpired, Duke University and Duke University Health System accepts no liability for donated supplies and the receiving individual or organization is responsible for ensuring the supplies are safe and appropriate for use in patient care. 1.
