Donating assets to non-profit institutions

BIREME’s information technology (IT )infrastructure  uses and makes available to its personnel equipment that periodically must be replaced. In this sense and in line with the PAHO/WHO donation process, in October 2022, a call was initiated for non-profit institutions interested in receiving such equipment. With the indication, moreover, of BIREME collaborators, 33 institutions were contacted, of which 19 showed interest.

BIREME/PAHO/WHO considers this action important for the effective support of non-profit institutions that cooperate with the development of local communities in Greater São Paulo, cooperating, therefore, with the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

About 30 desktops, 10 notebooks and 20 cell phones were part of this donation process.

About the donation procedure

  1. Donations were made to non-profit institutions (e.g., kindergartens, orphanages, state and municipal schools, etc.);
  2. The institutions presented letters of interest addressed to BIREME/PAHO/WHO and in the condition that the materials and equipment were presented;
