The Fab13 members of Farmindustria together with Fimmg and Cittadinanzattiva.
The Italian pharmaceutical companies of Farmindustria (the so-called Fab13, Abiogen Pharma, Alfasigma, Angelini, Chiesi, Dompè, IBN Savio, Italfarmaco, Kedrion, Neopharmed Gentili, Menarini, Molteni, Recordati, SPA, Zambon), in addition to the initiatives that they are individually carrying out, have decided to join the 'Together without Fear' fundraiser promoted by the Federation of general practitioners (Fimmg) together with Active Citizenship organization (Cittadinanzattiva) to find and distribute collective protection devices for all primary care physicians: they will donate over 3 million euros in financial resources and capital goods.
The companies want to demonstrate their support to general practitioners, who are freelancers affiliated with the National Health System and are the first line necessary to contain and select hospitalization processes. These companies have chosen to maintain their headquarters in Italy even if they are internationalized, they invest in Italy and employ 42 thousand employees in the research and production fields. They represent a strategic manufacturing sector with an active social role and strong belief in Italy, especially in the current emergency.
The companies are close and grateful to all the medical staff and health workers who fight for the patients against the Covid-19 pandemic and also thank the employees of the pharmaceutical companies, who with enormous sacrifices are continuing to produce the drugs and medical aids to ensure the health needs of the population.
