AstraZeneca is committed to ensuring that patients receive appropriate medicine donations through reputable partners and that these donations are of the highest quality. To that end, AstraZeneca aligns our product donations with both the World Health Organization (WHO) “Guidelines for Medicine Donations”, as revised, and the Partnership for Quality Medical Donations (PQMD) “Guidelines for Quality Medical Product Donations”, as revised. Product donations are made to third-party non-governmental organizations and the company can not respond to individual requests.
