Meet GIVMED #Incubated by HIGGS

GIVMED, one of the participants of HIGGS Incubator Program, was established to encourage and enable individuals to share their unused, unexpired medicine with social pharmacies, elderly houses, NGOs and others with an easy, fast and reliable way and save people’s lives. GIVMED is the first network of exploitation of over-the-counter drugs for the benefit of socially vulnerable groups and has received international awards and distinctions for its work in 2016. In particular, GIVMED:

  • In September was selected among 10 candidates, in the final phase of the Social Impact Award contest, claiming the opportunity to make GIVMED’s application accessible also from a computer.
  • In August was selected among 300 applications as a healthcare pioneer at the European Alpbach Forum 2016 Health Symposium, in Alpbach Austria, at the same time being the only organization that represented Greece.
  • In July, GIVMED received the Golden Prize at the Volunteering Festival 2016 “Voluntary Action” in health and welfare.
  • In March took the first place at TEDxAUEB TECH after the evaluation of its business plan.
  • In January received the Angelopoulos fellowship in the field of social health and participated in the CGIU (Clinton Global Initiative University) which was held in Berkeley.
