STRICT BOARD OVERSIGHT AND GOVERNANCE: Direct Relief’s
operations are conducted in conformance with an annual operating
budget that is vetted and approved by its 35-member Board of Directors,
which includes several former and current top executives of leading
U.S. and international companies with over 150 collective years in
the investment business, three physicians, three PhDs, and three
TRANSPARENCY: Direct Relief pioneered open Shareholders’ Meetings
for all its “investors” (every individual, company, or organization that
has contributed money, material, or time to Direct Relief) to brief them
on how their investments were spent. The organization held its fourth
annual meeting this year which was covered by the New York Times.
INDEPENDENT AUDIT: An audit committee, comprised of both non-
Director and Director members, retains and meets with an independent
public accounting fi rm that conducts the annual audit. The committee
also meets with the auditor, independent of any staff including the
CEO and CFO, to discuss fi ndings. The Board’s Executive and Finance
Committees meet monthly to review performance against budget and
conduct general oversight.
STAFF COMPENSATION: The compensation of all Direct Relief staff
members is benchmarked each year against a survey of nonprofi t
compensation levels throughout Southern California, similar nonprofi t
organizations nationwide, and publicly available compensation data.
The CEO’s performance and compensation are reviewed annually by the
Board of Director’s compensation committee.

DIRECT RELIEF PARTNER
IN IMPROVING NUTRITION IN CAMBODIA
With fi nancial and material assistance from Abbott, Direct Relief and Angkor
Hospital for Children (AHC) in Cambodia are collaborating on a year-long
nutrition education and support program. The partnership addresses the high
incidence of pediatric malnutrition and will improve the health of thousands
of Cambodian children and their families.
In Cambodia, malnutrition is a major contributor to early childhood
mortality and is associated with more than half of all childhood deaths.
Approximately 45 percent of children in Cambodia are underweight, and
many suffer from specifi c micronutrient defi ciencies. The Abbott-funded
nutrition program uses a multi-pronged approach to nutrition education
through a team of nutrition education nurses, a demonstration cook, and
a gardener. General principles of nutrition, healthy cooking, and growing
nutritious plants are all emphasized in this innovative program designed for
patients and their families.
Since 2003, Direct Relief has provided over $10 million dollars of medical
material support to AHC. The most recent assistance included Abbottdonated
nutritional and rehydration products to complement the nutrition
program, as well as anti-infective agents and other pharmaceuticals
specifi cally requested by the hospital.

PREPAREDNESS CAPACITY IN CALIFORNIA
Direct Relief and FedEx are helping prepare California’s safety-net clinic system for
natural or medical disasters through a statewide telemedicine system with the California
Primary Care Association (CPCA). The CPCA will use the system to develop statewide
emergency video conferencing communications, utilizing CPCA regional clinic groups
as points of access. This will allow clinics and health centers throughout the state to
support their colleagues in the event of a natural disaster or disease outbreak. For 15
years, FedEx has provided Direct Relief free transportation and logistical services to
assist people worldwide.
Since 2000, the Santa Barbara Vintners’ Foundation has held a biennial wine auction to benefi t Direct Relief.
The auction has presented the opportunity for one of the region’s fastest growing industries, which is gaining
international notoriety for its wines, to rally together to put the “fruits of their success” toward a greater good.
The Vintners look for perfect pairings in food and wines, and recognize a similar goal with Direct Relief, who
looks for these pairings with health partners worldwide, providing them with the tools and materials they need
in the places that need them the most. The Vintners’ auctions have raised over $1,020,000, which leveraged with
Direct Relief’s unique ability to stretch donated dollars, has furnished over $30.6 million in medical material aid
provided to those in need.
Direct Relief has also benefi ted from a winemaker dinner series that was the brain child of two of its board
members, Phil Battaglia and Kate Firestone. The series, in its fourth year, provides the opportunity to introduce
Direct Relief to new supporters in an elegant, yet casual and enjoyable environment. These events have raised
over $450,000 for Direct Relief. It is an honor for Direct Relief to receive the generous support of the Santa
Barbara County wine community.

Global Health Problems,
1. our approach:
Direct Relief is nonsectarian and privately fi nanced. Our medical
assistance programs equip health professionals working in resourcepoor
communities to better meet the challenges of diagnosing,
treating, and caring for people without regard to politics, religion,
gender, race, or ability to pay.
2. our partners:
Direct Relief’s network of partners includes more than 300
healthcare facilities and organizations located in over 60 countries.
Partner facilities range from small rural outposts to large hospitals
serving thousands each day.
3. how we select partners:
Partner institutions and organizations are selected through a
rigorous qualifi cation process. The selection criteria include the
extent of poverty and disease burden in the region, the knowledge
and skill of the healthcare providers, and the quality of the services
provided. Priority is given to facilities focusing on HIV/AIDS and
providing educational and preventive services to mothers and children.
4. how we help:
Direct Relief provides medicines, nutritional supplements, medical
supplies, and equipment to approved partners. By encouraging
healthcare companies to donate appropriate products, Direct Relief
furnishes items specifi cally requested by facilities’ medical staffs.
In the fi rst ten months of 2006, Direct Relief has provided aid to
over 25 million people through 564 shipments. Direct Relief’s
professional staff includes a Chief Medical Offi cer and two
pharmacists, who review requests from partners to ensure that all
medical donations are appropriate for the level and type of healthcare
services being provided.
5. why it matters:
Health has intrinsic value for every person, but it is also essential for
people to learn, work, and make a living. In developing countries,
fi nancing health services is extremely diffi cult. The trained health
professionals in medically underserved communities represent the
most important part of the healthcare infrastructure. Direct Relief’s
support enables them to stay productively engaged so their patients
can receive needed care.
6. shared investment and self-help:
To ensure a shared stake in the assistance provided, Direct Relief
requests that each partner assume responsibility for a portion of the
port charges and the in-country transportation costs from port-ofentry
7. leading companies trust us:
Direct Relief works closely with the philanthropic initiatives of
dozens of healthcare companies, including Johnson & Johnson,
Merck, Pfi zer, Abbott, BD, Bristol- Myers Squibb, GlaxoSmithKline,
and MidMark Corporation. For a complete list of our medical product
donors, see page 7.
8. our experience and qualifi cations:
Direct Relief’s programmatic approach has been refi ned by 58 years
of experience. We are a licensed wholesale pharmacy, and our staff
has vast experience in international health and development. Visit
our web site to see a complete list of our credentials and
qualifi cations (www.DirectRelief.org).
HELPING PEOPLE WHO NEED A SAFETY NET
Direct Relief’s U.S. safety-net clinic support program has provided
needed medicines to working poor and fi xed-income persons who are
uninsured and would otherwise go without care, or pay high, nonnegotiated
rates for their prescriptions.
The program has strengthened the donation supply lines to low-income,
uninsured patients in need of prescription medicines by targeting
qualifi ed free clinics and community health centers. These are essential
pieces of the healthcare safety-net for the more than 46 million people in
the United States who are uninsured.
Since the inception
of the domestic clinic
support program in
2003, Direct Relief has
provided $42.1 million
(wholesale) of medicines
and supplies. Direct
Relief’s domestic partner
network now includes
over 150 clinics located

efforts to support clinics

our statewide efforts
in California over the
previous two years.

components of an emergency medical response.
Direct Relief has been licensed by the California Board of Pharmacy
for 45 years and recently became a licensed pharmacy distributor and
wholesaler in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, and Texas.
These licenses allow Direct Relief to assist resource-strapped clinics and
develop effi cient channels for emergency response.

PREVENTING CHILDHOOD BLINDNESS IN EL SALVADOR
Direct Relief has collaborated with Leiner Health
Products, the largest private label vitamin manufacturer
in the U.S., to provide high-dose capsules of vitamin
A over a three-year period to El Salvador’s FUDEM
to distribute through its clinic system in the country’s
poorest regions. FUDEM, which provides visual
screenings for 63,000 El Salvadoran children, will
administer the capsules to patients once every six months
for three years.
According to a USAID-funded
national survey, one out of every
three children under fi ve years of age
in El Salvador is vitamin A defi cient.
Vitamin A Defi ciency (VAD) is the
most common cause of preventable
blindness in children worldwide and
leads to increased morbidity and risk
The Women for Direct Relief,
a support group comprised of
community member supporters and
members of the Direct Relief board
of directors, embarked on a trip to El
Salvador to help distribute the vitamin
A capsules to children in rural areas.
During three days of a mobile medical
and visual campaign visiting three
different towns, nearly 1,700 people
of all ages received eye screenings and examinations. If
diagnosed with poor sight, either a new pair of glasses
were provided on the spot (447 received reading glasses,
141 prescription glasses) or an appointment for followup
service was scheduled. In addition, each child from
six months to fi ve years of age received a high-dose
vitamin A capsule, as well as a tablet of the antiworm

In the last ten years, medical technology company BD
(Becton Dickinson) and Direct Relief have had a successful
relationship helping people in developing countries
and disaster-ravaged areas by supplying and delivering
specifi cally-requested medical supplies to medically
underserved communities. In 2007, BD employees will
get a chance to experience the challenges and successes
of Direct Relief’s partners in Ghana fi rst-hand.
Working side by side with clinic staff from Maranatha
Maternity Clinic and Motoka Clinic, volunteers from
BD will play a direct role in the positive health outcomes
of women and children in Ghana. From upgrading lab
facilities to helping construct a clinic in a rural village,
they will immerse themselves in the daily realities of
Direct Relief’s partner organizations and return home
with a new appreciation of the public health system and
struggles in Ghana and the developing world.
Located in West Africa, Ghana has a population of over
22 million, with a life expectancy at birth of 49 years of
age and child mortality at approximately 112 per 1,000
births (WHO). Although the Ghanaian government has
worked to build and stock health facilities throughout
the country, the most rural communities have virtually
no medical care, and people must travel several hours
to reach the nearest health provider. This unique
partnership between BD and Direct Relief will bring
sorely needed medical equipment and supplies to rural
Ghana, while also upgrading these two specifi c facilities
to become major medical centers in the region.

DISASTER RELIEF AND EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE
The same programmatic standards apply whether providing ongoing assistance or disaster relief – we must know
specifi cally what is required, who is responsible, how the material will be used, and whether there is a secure
logistics channel. Following these principles, in 2006, Direct Relief responded to fi ve disasters around the globe.
HURRICANES KATRINA AND RITA
Furnished $31 million in post-hurricane assistance to the
Gulf Coast, composed of $26.8 million in medical material
aid and $4.27 million of targeted fi nancial resources to
rebuild the health infrastructure
Direct Relief’s support efforts have been aimed at both the major anchor
facilities that provide specialized services and the network of safety-net
clinics that play the key role in caring for people who have little money
and no insurance.
Direct Relief continues to support the Gulf Coast region. Recently, the Capitol
City Family Health Center (CCFHC) in Baton Rouge received $106,716 to
support their community health center. CCFHC provides preventative and
primary care to residents living in medically underserved communities in
the city of Baton Rouge and East Baton Rouge Parish. In the aftermath of
Hurricane Katrina, CCFHC provided medical and dental services for more
than 800 hurricane evacuees, of which 74 percent were uninsured.
The fi nancial assistance will cover comprehensive medical and dental
visits for 264 patients over a one year period, including medical and
diagnostic equipment, supplies, laboratory fees, and the yearly salaries for
a case manager and a consultant who will coordinate outreach efforts to
hurricane evacuees that remain in FEMA trailer parks.

Nearly 60 years of disaster response experience has taught Direct Relief
that traumatic injuries caused by earthquakes require extensive long-term
care and rehabilitation. In recognition of this, Direct Relief has focused its
available fi nancial support for the Pakistan earthquake on organizations,
facilities, and programs involved in rehabilitative medicine – ranging from
prosthetics to physical and occupational therapy.
Direct Relief fi nanced one of fi ve prosthetic centers for the Pakistan
Institute of Prosthetic and Orthotic Sciences (PIPOS) for two years,
covering everything from salaries to the materials used to create new
prosthetic limbs for injured patients. PIPOS is the eminent amputee
hospital in the country and provides new artifi cial limbs for patients at its
fi ve clinic sites. In the aftermath of the earthquake, PIPOS has been the
only prosthetic and orthotic organization to keep its doors open.
Direct Relief’s tsunami response efforts, consistent with the organization’s
overall philosophy, helped to strengthen and rebuild the local health
infrastructure. During the last two years, the results of Direct Relief’s
tsunami-response efforts include:
• To strengthen local health infrastructure, Direct Relief funded the
construction and rehabilitation of 52 community clinics and
hospitals in India, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka;
• To reach displaced and remote populations, Direct Relief purchased
13 ambulances, 4 mobile medical units with diagnostic capacity,
and 18 medical support vehicles for India, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka;
• To provide safe drinking water and prevent spread of communicable
diseases, Direct Relief funded construction of 627 water wells, 871
toilets, and the cleaning of 5,303 wells of debris and salt water in
Sri Lanka and Indonesia. Displaced children in a refugee camp in Muzaffarabad, Pakistan soon after the
