Every pill should go where it's needed most.

SIRUM matches surplus medicine from our donors with community partners like safety-net clinics and pharmacies. We help get donated medicine 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.

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.
