Bend Biomedical is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit global health pharmaceutical company. We deliver improved drug products for mass drug administration. Our high-quality, low-cost medicines treat and prevent serious diseases in neglected populations around the world.

What We Do

Mass drug administration is the administration of treatment or preventive medicine to every member of a defined population (except those for whom the medicine is contraindicated) usually annually or biannually until the disease is no longer endemic. 

We provide our medicines below-cost or completely free to governments and organizations using mass drug administration to serve neglected populations. Our business model allows these products to be funded primarily through grants and charitable contributions.

We are focused on blister packaging. The impoverished sick and susceptible deserve medicine in tamper-resistant, single-dose packaging that they can read. Blister packaging increases compliance and improves outcomes.

Community-based mass drug administration with our blister-packaged tablets is an opportune time to distribute a high-dose vitamin A capsule to children under five.
