For a global company like Ethicon, unmet healthcare needs around the world hit close to home. That's why donating medical devices to qualified relief efforts is such an important part of our commitment to give more patients in all parts of the world access to advanced surgical care. We make a meaningful difference to enhance the lives of thousands of people every year by contributing our products to support medical relief projects, natural disaster response teams and basic healthcare needs in underserved communities.

Many physicians and nurses donate their professional skills and may request products for use in conjunction with overseas medical missions under the direction of a qualified charitable non-profit organization.
Ethicon has partnered with Medical Assistance Program (MAP) International to create the Ethicon Medical Mission Pack. Designed to support some of the most common surgeries found in developing countries, types and quantities of products may vary depending on inventory available. MAP International reviews and processes requests for the Ethicon Medical Mission Pack from healthcare professionals participating in overseas medical mission. For application forms, go to the MAP International website at www.map.org or call 912 280-6627 for further assistance. These requests require three weeks for review and processing.
Non-Government Organizations (NGOs)
Ethicon and our parent company, Johnson & Johnson, partner with international NGOs to respond to disasters, medical relief efforts and basic healthcare needs in underserved communities overseas.
Because the majority of our support is directed to specific programs and organizations, only NGOs approved by the Johnson & Johnson Corporate Contributions Organization are included in these activities. We do not accept unsolicited proposals.
