Never waste drugs: are expensive and save lives.

Up to 30% of drugs are wasted, due to unappropriate prescription, poor compliance, change of therapy and patients death. In our homes we have several unexpired drugs that we are not going to use, for different reasons: change of therapy or death of a relative. Citizens can take these unexpired to 389 pharmacies in 15 provinces. In 2018 BF recovered 138.698 drugs valued 2.1 M €. These drugs were donated to 73 charities benefitting 224.000 people living in poverty and unable to access medical care.
