This environmental index aims to highlight suppliers that are taking steps to improve their environmental performance, and Medline’s high score will serve as a signal to buyers during the procurement process.
Unique partnership to further improve breast cancer care
As part of our breast cancer awareness activities, Medline International BV is pleased to announce a new partnership with Keep A Breast Europe (KABE), an American nonprofit breast cancer association with an international affiliate in Europe. Keep A Breast Europe is dedicated to empowering young people around the world with breast health education and support.
KABE has developed a mobile application called "Check Yourself," which is designed to educate young people about breast health education and to encourage regular self-checks. The application harmoniously supports Medline breast cancer awareness campaigns. As part of the collaboration agreement, Medline will donate funds to KABE from each Generation Pink® exam glove case sold to promote and sponsor the development and translation of the "Check Yourself” app into German, Spanish and Italian, expanding the app outside of English, French and Japanese.
