Fagron supplies products vital to the operation of healthcare systems in the markets where we operate. Besides improving patients’ lives and increasing accessibility to medicine, Fagron gives back to the communities where we operate by:

  • Providing education on pharmaceutical compounding and personalizing medicine via Fagron Academy.
  • Leveraging resources in the Fagron Foundation to increase healthcare access.

Our products, Fagron Academy and Fagron Foundation contribute to SDG 3 (Good health and well-being) by delivering personalized medicine and medicine to vulnerable patient groups and increasing the accessibility to medicine.

Fagron Academy

Fagron Academy increases and improves the pharmaceutical compounding knowledge and skills of prescribers and pharmacists. The market recognizes Fagron as a provider of the most extensive training and educational opportunities for, among other things, compounding techniques, the use of materials, administration forms, and quality and safety procedures.

Fagron Foundation

We created the Fagron Foundation in June 2012. The goal is to leverage human and financial resources to drive healthcare and community improvements and increase healthcare access. The Fagron Foundation focusses on donating healthcare products and equipment to the communities in which we operate. During 2020 and 2021 most of the Fagron Foundation initiatives were related to COVID-19 and included donations of masks, hand creams, alcohol gels, and COVID-19 tests.

Starting from 2022 we will organize an annual Fagron Foundation Day. During this day each Fagron employee volunteers for an NGO together with their local colleagues.
