Thanks to the collaboration of pharmaceutical companies, Banco Farmaceutico is able to guarantee the supply of medicaments to charities throughout the year. These are not only self-medication medicines, but also medicaments under medical prescription, supplements and devices. In 2019, 959.475 packs of medicines have been collected for a total value of 12,014,770 euros. 85 charities benefited from corporate donations (CD). To qualify for CD, charities have to feature the following criteria:
