Medline Donation to Help Healthcare Workers in Nepal

Sterillium Surgical Hand Rub Shipped to Help Aid in Infection Prevention

Mundelein, Ill., May 11, 2015 – The medical support needed in Nepal right now is extremely dire after the country was recently devastated by the worst earthquake to hit there in 80 years. Knowing that a crisis of this magnitude can raise several public health concerns, leading medical supplier Medline Industries, Inc. is helping to aid in infection prevention efforts.

In partnership with Project C.U.R.E., the largest provider of donated medical supplies and equipment to developing countries around the world, Medline has sent nearly 4,000 bottles of Sterillium surgical hand rub to healthcare workers in Kathmandu, providing them with the tools they need to help care for the sick and vulnerable.

Additionally, through the Medline Foundation, monetary assistance is being provided to Nepal via donations to UNICEF and the American Red Cross.

“Since our company’s inception, Medline has provided healthcare organizations and workers with vital products and clinical solutions required to prepare for a wide range of epidemics and natural disasters,” said Kathryn Cummings, vice president, corporate communications, Medline. “We thank Project C.U.R.E. for assisting us in this effort. And, we recognize the dedicated efforts of all Medline employees who help advance the health of healthcare around the world – especially in times of need.”
