Founded in 1987, Health Partners International of Canada (HPIC) is a Christian charity dedicated to increasing access to medicine and improving health in vulnerable communities. The charity reports that 50% of the world’s population lacks access to essential health services. The charity receives donations of medicine and supplies from Canadian pharmaceutical organizations and then sends them to international aid charities and local health partners. Applicants can customize the contents of bulk shipments to serve a community’s needs. Medicine is shipped directly from Canada. In F2023, the charity supported 39 countries and partnered with 25 NGOs. Its three largest grant recipients were: Hope and Healing International ($9.1m), Children Believe ($6.6m), and Hope International Development Agency ($5.6m).

HPIC runs three programs: Access to Medicine, Emergency Response, and Women and Children. HPIC spent $987k on its programs and $52.8m on donated goods in kind. The charity does not report how much it spends on each program.

Through its Access to Medicine program, Health Partners International provides humanitarian medical kits (HMKs). The charity’s primary care kits are portable packs of essential medicines and supplies. One kit can provide up to 600 medical treatments. HPIC also works with local governments and health facilities to deliver needed drugs and supplies for specialized needs such as vision, palliative, surgical, and mental health care. In F2023, HPIC delivered over 450 HMKs and provided 4.9 million treatments. Through this program, HPIC delivered medicine worth $48.8 million.

HPIC operates a Women’s and Children’s Health program where the charity trains nurses, midwives, and other frontline health workers in child health services. HPIC states that 94% of maternal deaths occur in low-income countries and that each day 15,000 children die before the age of five. In F2023, HPIC trained 46 workers in female genital mutilation. HPIC also trained 190 healthcare workers in rural communities. The charity reached 53,000 women of reproductive age and 16,500 children under the age of five.

Through its Emergency Response program, the charity works with local partners to provide direct medical relief (such as HMKs), train frontline workers, and raise awareness of health risks. The charity provided emergency response to 16 countries in F2023, including Türkiye, Syria, Ukraine, Sudan, and Iraq. In F2023, HPIC delivered 340 HMKs, of which 100 went to Iraq to support refugees.
