DOC2DOCK Converts American Hospital Waste Into Foreign Aid
A novel initiative uses a unique mix of advertising savvy, viral video, and aid work to reduce first-world waste and provide support for developing nations.
Acknowledging that wastefulness is an unfortunate part of the American hospital system, Doc2Dock is an initiative that was founded by Dr. Bruce Charash in 2005. The program, which is part of the Clinton Global Initiative, collects various excess medical supplies from a network of professionals and volunteers and sends them from the USA to hospitals in Africa.
