Every pill should go where it's needed most.

SIRUM matches surplus medicine from our donors with community partners like safety-net clinics and charitable pharmacies. We help get donations straight to partners’ doors, so their medical providers and pharmacists can provide medicine to the patients who need it most.

Why surplus medicine?

Up to $11 billion in unopened, unexpired medicine gets destroyed each year. Redistributing perfectly good medicine to patients in need creates a secondary marketplace for medicine where everyone benefits. We can save medicine to save lives.

Community Partner Spotlight

  • Good Pill launched in Georgia in 2017 as the state’s first pharmacy stocked with donated medicine. Delivering life-saving medicine to patients’ doors for a low administrative fee of $6 per 90-day supply, Good Pill is on a mission to make prescription pricing transparent and accessible. 
    Good Pill has filled 600,000+ prescriptions worth more than $50 million.
  • The Wyoming Medication Donation Program, run by the state’s Department of Health, offers short-term prescription assistance for Wyoming residents with limited resources. Between their network of local dispensing sites and their mail-order program, WMDP has filled over 150,000 prescriptions worth over $25 million since 2007.

Can I get help with my personal prescriptions?

More than 1 in 4 Americans have medicine costs that are too high. SIRUM does not give medicine directly to individuals and families, but you may be able to access donated medicine through our community healthcare partners or other local resources.
