On February 24th, Russia began its invasion of Ukraine in the biggest state-against-state attack since World War II. As of March 22nd, more than 3.6 million refugees have left Ukraine. PQMD’s members are responding to the crisis by supplying medicine (including insulin, COVID therapies, mental health medicines, etc.), first aid supplies, Essential Health Packs, water, sanitation and hygiene supplies, PPE syringes, etc. Members are also providing cash and many are partnering together to address the refugee crisis.

Members who would like to connect to discuss coordinating efforts in their response to the Ukraine crisis can do so on the PQMD Community of Practice (CoP) information and resource sharing platform. PQMD created this space to brainstorm, collaborate, and work together on potential solutions to expedite medical product donations. If you would like to be part of this platform, please contact Victoria Hammond.

As the situation evolves, PQMD will continue to lead the effort of convening and supporting our members to address any challenges and assure the quality of donations provided to refugees who are being forced to leave Ukraine due to Russia’s invasion. Our members’ work is critical to the mission of providing support and much needed high quality supplies to the millions of people who have left Ukraine. If you would like to support our members, please feel free to visit our members’ page which lists all our members and their websites.
