Draeger Teams Up with International Aid to Supply Medical Equipment for Use in Developing Countries
Date:11/18/2010

TELFORD, Pa., Nov. 18, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Draeger Medical, Inc., a subsidiary of Draegerwerk AG & Co. KGaA, a leading international company in the fields of medical and safety technology, has teamed up with the global humanitarian healthcare agency International Aid (IA) to donate used medical equipment to hospitals and clinics in developing countries.

As part of the agreement, Draeger will donate previously used anesthesia machines, ventilators, infant warmers, and incubators to International Aid. A dedicated IA team will collect and recondition these items and redistribute them to healthcare facilities in economically developing countries that have limited medical resources.

The partnership will significantly extend an important component of International Aid's mission – leveraging the involvement of corporate and ministry partners to bring medical products and services to those in need. IA will also provide education and product support to help local hospitals successfully deploy the donated equipment.

According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 50 percent of medical equipment in developing countries doesn't work. Missing manuals, incompatible power connections and needed repairs turn generous equipment donations into unusable machines. International Aid serves as a critical link between equipment donors and recipients to guarantee equipment donations are ready for use.

"Providing medical equipment, like incubators and ventilators, is important to allow every patient the highest possible level of health," said Donna Leister, manager of sales operations for Draeger Medical, Inc.  "We are proud to partner with International Aid and their humanitarian efforts to deliver clinically and economically appropriate medical equipment to hospitals and clinics in need to improve the health and welfare of the wider community."

Since July 2010, International Aid has shipped roughly $33.2 million in h
