global health initiative

We make healthcare run better, everywhere we go

Our mission is to bring everything we’ve
learned from working with the world’s top
health systems to the people who need it most.

"It's challenging to
manage purchased
and donated medical supplies...
and oftentimes our donations
don’t match our facility’s
Michael Fry
Supply Chain Manager
One World Surgery
“Essential health
habits are not taught
in much of the world...
for a young child, this
knowledge could be
the difference between
life and death.”
Douglas Jackson, PhD, JD
President and CEO
Project C.U.R.E.
“My clinical team
spends too much time
looking for supplies...
when we’re more
efficient, we can serve
more patients.”
Kate Clitheroe
Director of Programs and Operations
One World Surgery
