GE, International Aid Deliver Medical Equipment to Developing Countries

June 12, 2007 — Global humanitarian healthcare agency International Aid and GE Healthcare, a leading developer of transformational medical technologies and services, announced a strategic partnership dedicated to bringing vital, potentially life-saving medical equipment to communities in developing countries.

Under the terms of the partnership, GE Healthcare will donate previously used anesthesia machines and ventilators to International Aid. Going forward, GE Healthcare and International Aid plan to expand their partnership to cover a variety of GE Healthcare’s medical equipment, including maternal and infant care equipment, patient monitors and ultrasound systems.

GE will provide training to International Aid engineering staff to enable International Aid to service the equipment. International Aid will refurbish and distribute the products overseas. International Aid will also provide education and product support to help local hospitals successfully deploy the donated equipment. The new initiative, which combines the complementary resources and expertise of two leaders in their respective fields, is expected to involve the global distribution of more than 200 devices annually.

During its 2006 fiscal year, International Aid shipped nearly 1,400 donated therapeutic and diagnostic devices to needy communities worldwide.
