Program Description

The Equipment Donation Sub-Committee (EDSC), serves the joint partnership between AAPM and IOMP. The EDSC, would like to announce that it has an updated membership and, as its first initiative, has launched a new framework for both equipment donations and equipment requests. The goal of this framework is to increase the likelihood that available, working-order equipment is put to good use at functional or upcoming clinics or educational institutions in low and middle income countries.

AAPM has facilitated the communication with the EDSC through a dedicated address: equipment.donation@aapm.org.

If you have equipment that you would like to donate, or you would like to request specific equipment, please see the brief description of the framework and submit completed versions of Forms A or B.
