WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
- Many medical professionals in impoverished areas are poorly compensated for their hard work and dedication. They simply do not have enough money for costly medical uniforms.
- Without the proper medical attire, the spreading of disease and illness increases exponentially. Clean scrubs reduce the hospital-acquired infection rate by 66% and result in millions of dollars saved from unnecessary treatments.
- The medical uniform gives healthcare providers a recognizable symbol of caring and commitment, promoting a strong sense of pride, professional identity and teamwork.
WHO WE PARTNER WITH
We work with Project C.U.R.E. and the best medical teams from other healthcare organizations to insure that our scrubs get into the hands of medical professionals in need around the world. To date, we have donated over 10,000 sets of scrubs in 15 different countries. Read more about our medical missions on our blog.
WHAT'S IN A NAME
All FIGS products are named after cities in the countries where we've given scrubs. From the Dominican Republic to Senegal, all these areas hold a special place in our heart.
