Partnership for Quality Medical Donations Unveils New Logo

Annapolis, Md. – January 22, 2018 – The Partnership for Quality Medical Donations (PQMD), is proud to today announce the unveiling of their new logo, signifying an updated and contemporary look for the Annapolis, Md., based nonprofit organization.

Working with Richmond, Va., based designer Chad Cariano, the logo now incorporates several visual elements symbolizing partnership, guidance, and medicine. Also newly-included is a nod to the international color for medicine, green. The new visual identity for PQMD more properly reflects the primary tenants of the work done by the organization and all 42 corporate and non-governmental organization (NGO) members.

“PQMD has evolved tremendously over the past twenty-plus years,” said Elizabeth Ashbourne, executive director of PQMD. “We felt strongly that as an organization, we were ready for a new visual identity that clearly communicates the level of professional thought-leadership represented by our members, advisory council, and staff.”

The announcement comes as PQMD is set to host their 2018 Global Health Policy Forum April 10-11 in Washington, D.C. To learn more about details and speakers, and to stay up-to-date on registration information, click here.


PQMD is a dynamic alliance and global network between nonprofit and corporate organizations leading in the development and championing of guidelines on quality for the donation policies and practices; delivering of urgent care in disaster situations, and delivering life-saving products and service to at-risk and chronically under-served populations. The organization’s beginnings go back to 1996, when an informal alliance of several non-governmental organizations (NGOs), pharmaceutical companies, and medical device firms joined together to develop guidance regarding medical donations.
