Business in Support of a Cause is the award that BAMPTD won at Federation Bulgarian Patient Forum organization’s annual ceremony

Bulgarian Association for Medicines Parallel Development of Drug Trade received two nominations for the annual awards of the Federation of Bulgaria Patient Forum “Daniela Seizova – In the Name of Life” 2019.

Business with a Cause and Best Patient-Corresponding Institution are the two categories in which BAMPTD was discussed for a reward by the patient organization. The prize was given to Hristofor Ivanov, chairman of BAMPTD at official award ceremony that took place on December 05, 2019. He stated out the dedication of BAMPTD to continue working for better patients’ access to therapy and for searching drug shortage solutions.

The award is the result of the online platform creation for servicing medicines shortage signals. It was designed as part of a joint action program with the FBPF, which was set out in a Memorandum of Cooperation, which also includes joint actions to build an effective regulatory framework that would allow for rapid delivery of proven drug shortages and regulation of drug imports, that are deregistered for reasons other than pharmacovigilance.


BAMPTD also maintains a hotline to the platform through which it receives signals over the telephone and thus provides quick feedback to the received shortage signals via the Internet. For the period June 09, 2018 – December 05, 2019, 716 signals have been submitted and served from all over the country.
