Surplus Laboratory Materials Needed for Hospital in Cameroon

Market-based organizations are invited to participate in a project to help St. Martin de Porres Hospital in Cameroon increase production and distribution of intravenous solutions and other drug products in its laboratory. "The ability to produce safe, high quality products will greatly increase the sustainability of other health care initiatives being formed in this region by the Catholic Consortium for International Health Services," said Peggy Egan, OSF, vice president of mission and healthy communities for Catholic Health Initiatives. Members of the Supply Chain Resource Group are currently surveying market-based organizations to find surplus materials that can expand St. Martin’s laboratory.
