EPPAD Philanthropy

The pharmacy philanthropy participant group is intended to contribute to a “pharmacy fund” that will go to directly support critical need areas in the pharmaceutical sector to realize immediate practical responses. Suggested illustrative activities to be supported by the pharmacy fund include: a scholarship fund for needy pharmacy students; providing sanitary pads for needy pharmacy female students who usually miss days every month because of inability to buy sanitary pads; awards/recognitions for outstanding students; providing medicines to welfare groups like “Macedonia Senior Citizens Home” for treating common diseases; supporting Ethiopian Pharmaceutical Association (EPA) events/activities (e.g. BP/Blood Sugar monitors for a public screening of non-communicable diseases; publication of journals, etc.); quick fix supports to improve dispensing or similar pharmacy services
