Each year, tens of thousands of dollars of medical equipment and supplies within Duke University Health System are designated as "surplus." Surplus equipment includes items set aside because they are being replaced by newer equipment, or medical supplies and equipment that have been prepared for but not actually used in surgical or other medical procedures. This equipment can change lives in low resource settings.
The mission of Duke Global Health PLUS is to make this surplus medical equipment and material from DUHS available to health care professionals around the world.
