From the Program’s launch to this day, 242,504 items of medical equipment, appliances and pharmaceutical supplies have been delivered to 70 islands with a total of 833,357 inhabitants, who thus obtained direct access to health services which, although necessary, were not a given for the local medical centers of the individual islands.
