Over the past several months, the American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA) has been partnering with several US-based organizations to amplify the message about the safety and efficacy of the Covid-19 vaccine in underserved and BIPoC communities.

In response to the recent surge in the coronavirus in India, AMWA has acted to address the Covid-19 pandemic globally. Specifically, AMWA has begun working with Navya and other organizations to send oxygen concentrators to India, and with the support of our members, we have raised funds to back this effort. In just a few short weeks, AMWA raised more than $23,000 to help procure oxygen concentrators and supporting a move to provide Oxygen Plants. (Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) plants employ a technology providing longer-term benefit to manage the pandemic and beyond). Through our partnership with Together4India , oxygen concentrators and funds for oxygen plants have been donated to medical sources throughout India

AMWA is proud to support this critical effort through our global sister organization — the American Women’s Hospitals Service (AWHS) — promoting local efforts that make a significant impact on the health and lives of the people in India. We are also working to support efforts in Nepal, through AMWA’s long-time partner Clinic Nepal. Learn more HERE. These efforts have been spearheaded by Dr. Padmini Murthy, AMWA Global Health Lead, Dr. Eliza Chin, AMWA Executive Director, Dr. Saralyn Mark, AMWA Covid-19 lead, and Khawaja Shams, a member of the AMWA Board of Directors.

Please join us in continuing these vital efforts:   DONATE NOW
