Hope you are well?
It's hard to believe that we're already over halfway through 2021! Last year brought a multitude of challenges and 2021 has been no different. Despite the ongoing challenges brought on by the pandemic and Brexit, International Health Partners has continued to provide product at a time when it is needed more than ever.
IHP’s work has increased exponentially this year. Our determination to provide medicine and medical supplies to vulnerable communities has so far, enabled us to send 5.6 million treatments to 26 countries. With your help, we’ve reached over 1.8 million people with the products they need. IHP currently has 50 shipments in progress, so our work certainly isn't slowing down!
It goes without saying that this would not be possible without the support of our corporate partners, and we continue to be blown away by the response from donors. June 2021 in particular was a record-breaking month for the Corporate Partnerships team, with over 1 million units of stock offered! We have also onboarded 12 new donors this year and we are excited to see how these partnerships grow. The whole IHP team is so grateful for the continued support the pharmaceutical industry has shown.
So far this year, we have sent our first ever shipments to support mental health programmes in Lebanon and Gaza; delivered millions of de-worming tablets; provided essential medicines to refugee camp clinics; sent medicines to help manage COVID-19 symptoms, coinfections and complications; provided support to ensure safer births in sub-Saharan Africa; and responded to ongoing disasters in Gaza, Tigray, Yemen and Haiti.

If you would like to share externally about your partnership with IHP, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss further.
If you would like more information on our upcoming shipments or direct product needs lists, please do let us know. Alternatively, if you are not currently able to donate product but are interested in supporting IHP’s operations financially, please get in touch and we would be happy to put together a proposal for you.
Thank you again for your continued support.
