Community Medicine Bank
Fundación Tzedaká’s Community Medicine Bank is a program intended to distribute free medicines to vulnerable groups across the country, serving an estimated total of 35,000 people. This is Argentina’s largest medicine bank and the only one working with a scheme that combines both professional and volunteer labor. It complements the efforts deployed by the State, providing the services that are not delivered by the public medicine supply programs currently in place.
On account of its efficiency and track record, the Foundation’s Community Medicine Bank has been recognized with a Cooperation Agreement with Argentina’s National Healthcare Ministry.
Its Nationwide Medicine Distribution Network serves 135 public hospitals and social organizations across 20 provinces, providing healthcare to thousands of vulnerable Argentine people.
