Providing health and spreading hope is the mission of Health Partners International of Canada (HPIC), a Canadian humanitarian organization that sent its first shipment of medical aid in 1990. HPIC has shipped more than $195 million (wholesale value) in donated medicines, vaccines, medical supplies and devices since 1990. It partners with Canadian companies and individuals from across the country to provide medical aid. HPIC improves the health and lives of children and adults in the developing world. Historically, every donated dollar has helped Canadians deliver at least $10 in medical aid to the most vulnerable.
