Direct Relief USA: New Orleans, Louisiana

Since 2004, Direct Relief USA has grown to partner with nearly 1,100 clinics domestically. Direct Relief USA aims to strengthen community and health centers in three distinct ways. 1) Provide safety net inventory support through increasing access to medication to underserved people. 2) Replenishment Program by providing a reliable, no-cost supply of medication to clinics. 3) Emergency preparedness and response.

I was able to visits and document some of these clinics where many of these programs were developed, partially as a result of the post-Katrina aftermath. It was great to see the continued relationship between one such clinic and Direct Relief. One project that Direct Relief has pioneered is the Hurricane Prep Packs which are distributed throughout the Gulf in the event of a disaster. Here are just a few images of my visit.
