Record Donation of Respiratory Medicines Headed to U.S. Clinics
Date:5/28/2013

STAMFORD, Conn., May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AmeriCares is providing a record quantity of respiratory medicines to help low-income and uninsured patients across the United States breathe easier during National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month. Pharmaceutical companies donated more than $2.4 million in prescription medicines – enough to fill about 25,000 prescriptions – for the effort.

The donated products include both maintenance medications such as inhaled steroids as well as rescue medications for patients experiencing asthma attacks or difficulty breathing. Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Inc. and AstraZeneca are the major sponsors, with both companies donating truckloads of medications for free clinics and community health centers nationwide. Sunovion donated enough quick-relief medicines that are used to treat acute asthma attacks for approximately 22,000 children and adults suffering from asthma. AstraZeneca donated enough respiratory therapies to provide preventive treatment for more than 3,000 children and adults with asthma.

AmeriCares is making the medicines available to hundreds of free clinics and community health centers serving low-income and uninsured patients through its U.S. Medical Assistance Program. Safety net partners select the products they want from an online ordering system and AmeriCares delivers them free of charge.

"These are some of the most frequently prescribed respiratory medicines, and some of the most difficult for low-income patients to obtain," said Leslie McGuire , AmeriCares director of U.S. programs. "Uninsured and underinsured patients can receive treatment in safety net clinics and health centers, but without donated medicines many would leave with scripts in hand they can't afford to fill. Thanks to AstraZeneca and Sunovion, we are helping patients avoid unnecessary emergency room visits and hospital
