Clinton Global Initiative Doc to Dock is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was originally inspired by the Clinton Global Initiative in 2005. Everyday in the United States, thousands of tons of unused medical supplies are either incinerated or sent to landfills. At the same time in developing nations, thousands of patients are turned away from hospitals and medical centers due to a lack of these supplies. Doc to Dock is dedicated to correcting this imbalance and improving our environment by gathering and redistributing these vitally needed supplies to countries in the developing world. Our shipments of medical material have brought hope and healing to countless patients and decreased our carbon footprint in the process.

Ways to Help:

Doc to Dock is dedicated to improving global health while helping our environment through the recovery and redistribution of surplus medical and surgical supplies to developing countries. We need your help. Doc to Dock’s operations and success depend on the efforts of its volunteers.
