Healthcare Ready

  • Healthcare Ready is an independent emergency response and relief organization established after Hurricane Katrina.  Healthcare Ready, created by PhRMA, has been working with PhRMA companies, healthcare providers, transportation providers, federal, state, and local governments, and many others to identify critical needs in the regions affected by disasters. Team members are working nearly around-the-clock to help the pharmaceutical industry provide relief to people in need.


  • Help from MDA: Following local weather emergencies, MDA actively tries to reach all individuals it serves who live in the affected areas to assess their well-being and offer assistance. If you have evacuated to a different area and need MDA services (including help with durable medical equipment or visiting an MDA Care Center), find the nearest MDA office by entering the ZIP code of your current location.
