People and Communities

We want our employees and communities to achieve their full potential. We help by addressing health equity in communities around the world, making charitable contributions, and facilitating employee volunteer opportunities.

Community Engagement

Medline has an on-the-ground presence in several European countries. Interacting with and supporting the communities in which we operate is the right thing to do.

Our local donation committees represent employees across our various European sites. The mandate of the committees is to use their local knowledge to identify charitable causes that will benefit their respective communities.

Causes that we have supported to date include disaster relief in Italy following the 2016 earthquakes and an organisation in Slovakia that promotes healthy and active lifestyles for youth and children. 

Product Donations

Medline believes that access to reliable, affordable and high quality healthcare services should be attainable for every community.

We provide life-saving medical supplies to healthcare facilities in need around the world through our partnership with International Health Partners (IHP).

Based in the United Kingdom, IHP is a registered charity that acts as an intermediary between healthcare companies and aid agencies. In collaboration with IHP, Medline has donated more than 20 tonnes of supplies to help communities in countries such as Iraq, Guatemala and Haiti.

Personal Involvement: Medical Service Trips

Medline provides its employee with the opportunity to go on a medical service trip with our partners in order to contribute to humanitarian missions in developing countries. Employees are also welcome to seek out their own opportunity.

Tripp Amdur,

 went to Beirut, Lebanon, with the Global Smile Foundation (27 April – 6 May 2018)

‘The work this organisation does is amazing. They really save lives. The doctors and nurses give up their holidays and often pay for their own travel. I am not a clinician, but I am so happy to have the chance to contribute'.

Emily Janke,

 went to Trujillo, Peru, with the Global Smile Foundation (25 May – 3 June 2018)

‘I’ve felt very blessed the past few years, especially in my ability to travel and see the world, and I feel like the Global Smile Foundation has given me an opportunity to pay it forward and make a difference’.
