Corporate donations



A substantial part of medicines donated to institutions come directly from pharmaceutical companies.
Currently there are about thirty companies that collaborate with Banco Farmaceutico through the Banco Farmaceutico Research Association which takes care of the legal, fiscal and logistical areas and is available to offer advice to companies about how to manage the entire system of donation.

In this way Banco Farmaceutico is able to provide the welfare charities a supply of medicines for the entire year; This is not only regards OTC products, but also prescription drugs, supplements and devices. The welfare charities that benefit from corporate donations meet the following criteria:

  • • deal with health care in Italy or in countries in the developing world;
  • • have medical personnel who can dispense prescription medicines
  • • have pharmaceutical storage facilities

Banco Farmaceutico has created BFOnline, a web-based platform, with easy access to the Farmadati archive, so that the offers made by companies can be combined with the requests by charities and managed, according to the active ingredient.

The medicine packaging (cancellation of label/ instruction leaflet verification) and distribution are guaranteed by the collaboration with DHL, Alliance Healthcare, Alloga, Chiapparoli and Unifarma, leading companies in the field of logistics.
