Mission & Principles
The mission of HUB Worldwide (HUB) is to improve health in under-resourced communities through distribution of medical supplies and equipment with onsite training and education.
HUB Worldwide includes its home, Alabama, in its global network. It has built relationships with several health care delivery facilities and health care training centers to supply them with equipment. We also deliver supplies to the local Humane Society and other animal and pet rescue centers. With a focus on training, HUB donates to schools specializing in educating students to pursue a healthcare profession.
We are based in Birmingham, AL and are interested in supporting communities that serve our vulnerable populations. Many of these communities do not have access to adequate medical care or equipment/supplies to serve their populations. HUB seeks to bridge the gap between facilities with surplus supplies and clinics that desperately need these donations. Our goal is to serve as an additional resource of supplies and equipment in an ongoing basis for these clinics to enable them to better serve their patients.

HUB Worldwide is local and global.
We take our role as environmental stewards seriously.
We are the only nonprofit in the state of Alabama that has this mission/vision.


HUB Principles for Engagement

  • Partnerships are recipient driven, rather than donor driven

  • Recipients determine their priorities of requested materials

  • Partnerships are developed with the goal of collegial/professional counterpart relationships at the community level, the field level, and includes relevant government ministries.

  • Donated supplies in our inventory that are not wanted are not sent.

  • Donations will be vetted with recipients prior to shipping

  • Department heads will be notified of shipments, with a list of equipment sent and an ETA

  • When possible hospital/department wide single branding will be used to promote compatibility

  • An attempt will be made to continue with current department branding to ensure compatibility

  • Needs assessments will include primary, secondary and tertiary health care settings, with the knowledge that well supplied primary health care centers will decrease transfers to higher levels, and transfers will be potentially less acute.

  • Equipment that is sent will come with the intent to provide a continuous supply of consumables related to the equipment, such as paper for EKG machines and cassettes for IV infusion pumps

  • Equipment will include the biomedical training necessary to maintain and repair as needed, with a process in place to access spare parts.
