MAP International is a nonprofit that accepts mostly in-kind donations of drugs from pharmaceutical companies and delivers them to people in developing countries who cannot afford them. Each year, the organization receives about $500 million in donated pharmaceuticals. Cash donations from foundations and individuals provide the funding for logistics to move the drugs to where they are most needed with the result that millions of people are receiving life-saving drugs they otherwise could not afford. President and CEO, Steve Stirling, leads the organization. He is the author of The Crutch of Success: From Polio to Purpose, Bringing Health & Hope to the World. Yesterday, the Global Polio Eradication Initiative marked its annual World Polio Day, celebrating the progress toward eradication of polio. The GPEI is led by Rotary International; Steve is a member of his local Rotary club. Never miss another interview! Join Devin here: http://bit.ly/joindevin.
