Blueprints for Pagaea reallocates excess, unused medical supplies from U.S. hospitals to low-income areas domestically and overseas.
Blueprints for Pagaea is a student-run, 501(c)(3) nonprofit. To date, Blueprints has sent 85,000lbs of medical supplies valued at over $3 Million to areas in need. Founded and based out of the University of Michigan, Blueprints is a national network of university chapters united in addressing global health care inequalities. Our model consists of partnering with U.S. hospitals, collecting supplies from those hospitals, verifying the quality of those supplies, and shipping those supplies to areas in need. Our rapidly scalable model has resulted in 6 fully operational chapters across the country and has enabled affordable, higher quality patient care at the international level.
