Contributing to Healthcare in Underserved Regions
Merit Medical works with charitable organizations around the globe to distribute products to non-profits, hospitals, and clinics that help meet the needs of underserved communities in emerging countries.
Merit’s goal is to improve the lives of people, families, and communities worldwide. The following organizations align with this mission and work to develop ways to help more patients in need.

Ten percent of the world’s population is affected by chronic kidney disease (CKD), and millions die each year because they do not have access to affordable treatment.2 To help make life-prolonging dialysis treatments available to these patients, Merit donates products to programs that use them.
