Aurobindo became a partner to Dispensary of Hope in 2012. In only 5 short years, Aurobindo has donated 3,736,413 doses of medicine. Almost 30% of these doses were donated in 2017. This is largely due to the quick and additional response to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts with additional donations.
Pharmaceutical products are provided to the Dispensary of Hope through generous donations from Aurobindo. Donated products are then distributed domestically to access sites, which include federally qualified health centers, free clinics, charitable pharmacies, outpatient pharmacies, and state central access programs, all licensed to dispense medication. The typical recipients of Dispensary of Hope medications are patients between the ages of 18 and 65, with income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, and who are pharmaceutically uninsured.
Today, the work of the Dispensary of Hope is delivered by a national collaborative of health systems, pharmaceutical manufacturers, and others dedicated to providing medication access to the most underserved communities. Each day, this collaborative is humbled by the stories heard from patients, the challenges they take on in seeking medical care and the trials they face in securing the medication that often keeps them alive.
Aurobindo is proud of its partnership with Dispensary of Hope and appreciative of the benefits this organization is able to deliver to those affected by poverty.
Below is a video of Bob Cunard, former CEO of Aurobindo Pharma USA explaining how the collaboration has evolved and grown since we first partnered and is continually serving communities throughout the United States.
