Purdue Pharma, L.P. has donated one freight container of Betadine® Microbicides solution which is used in the home as a cleanser to prevent skin infections from minor cuts and burns, as well as a pre-surgical cleanser in hospitals.

Physicians working in Children International's medical clinics in the slums and barrios of Chile and Honduras will use the antiseptic in the care of over 40,000 children.
