Unipharms Foundation is a non-profit procurement cooperative member platform for enabling the purchasing of generic medicines for supply to developing countries.

We are a startup Dutch based nonprofit cooperative sourcing alliance organization that uses good distribution practice from European procured pooled quality generic medicines at the lowest net price to deliver low costs to end users outside Europe.

Please contact us info@unipharms.com for more information about how our transparent competitive approach can provide access for your pharmaceutical needs by joining our cooperative of purchasers.

Unipharms Foundation located in the Netherlands, is a non-profit, strategic-buying alliance that currently works on behalf of non EU and non US healthcare professionals in the procurement of quality European generic medicines. Unipharms Foundation has been initiating, mediating, and coordinating joint-buying activities of EU generic medicines for its cooperative of members. By pooling and leveraging our members purchasing needs with EU medicine distribution supplier channels expertise and volume we seek to source generic medicines and also private label medicines on an international scale. Through this process Unipharms Foundation is able to deliver quality generic medicines at affordable prices. This enables patients to access treatments and ensure continuity of supply for ongoing therapy.

The main goal for this non-profit sourcing cooperative alliance foundation “Unipharms“ is to increase the access to EU quality generic medicines worldwide through one stop pooled cooperative purchasing.

Buying together Better”. Unipharms is non-profit, cooperative strategic sourcing alliance that currently works with top European generic medicine pharmaceutical distribution channel suppliers. The sourcing cooperative alliance has been initiating, managing, and coordinating joint-buying activities supply to members in Africa, Asia and South America. The fragmented demand for generic medicines worldwide creates inefficiencies in global procurement including timing of needs, logistics, warehousing and continuity of supply.

Unified Pharmacist Foundation (“Unipharms”) by forming a cooperative is able to consolidate the demand for medicines across several customers producing larger purchasing volumes facilitating negotiation of competitive prices.

Developing countries by purchasing European quality generic medicines benefit from unified labeling and packaging, patient information and product integrity. This also allows the European generic drug manufacturers to maximize their production capacity and provide competitive net pricing. Given the regulatory rules of each member pharmaceutical country, this centralized purchasing of generic drugs may not apply to all classes of drugs. Our services and fees to our alliance cooperative client’s members: Our cooperative alliance purchasing coalition members pay directly to the seller distributors. We charge our cooperative member buyers a nominal percentage for facilitating, mediation and arranging distribution. We also provide additional services when necessary to assist with any documentation to register the approved generic medicines with their respective countries health regulators. We also provide our clients with a range of generic medicines options based on our involvement with the EU generic medicine industry.

Counterfeit medicines are avoided by buying directly from the established European drug distribution channels. No substandard, spurious, falsely labelled, falsified or counterfeit (SSFFC) Medicines enter the distribution supply chains.

Types of EU made generic medicines, dosage and packaging: Unipharms will source for their cooperative member buyers a wide range of EU standard generic medicines in tablets, capsules, bottles of oral suspension/solution, tubes of creams/ointments, bottles of infusions and injections. These medicines will be packed and labelled complying with EU regulations including the main EU languages of English, French, Spanish or Portuguese.

Unipharms cooperative alliance buyers will benefit from the largest EU distribution channels; low costs, “good distribution practice”, transportation (temperature controlled sea, air, truck, rail or courier) combined with track&trace and on time capabilities in order to meet the needs and requirements of the worldwide purchasers. Depending on the destination as well as our cooperative coalition member buyer’s demands or preferences, Unipharms will also work with local forwarders and their wholesale distributors to handle the final distribution to the recipient. Efficiencies in transport distribution from one stop consolidated purchasing allows Unipharms to align purchasing between the top European generic manufacturers and wholesale distributor suppliers to the needs of specific destination buyers worldwide, minimising costs, delays and errors.

We work with nationally recognized licensed non EU importers in offering countries a chance to purchase European generic medicines at low net pricing via a transparent procurement process. We are partnering with Europe’s biggest and leading pharmaceutical wholesale intermediary procurement channels to leverage their purchasing and distribution network to deliver at the lowest net price to our non EU customers.

We require end user certificates showing that the medicine is only for use outside EU countries and for direct distribution via their network to non EU patients.
