Armada Health Care and AIDS Healthcare Foundation Announce New Purchasing Alliance

Armada Health Care (Armada), the nation’s largest specialty pharmacy group purchasing and channel management organization, is pleased to announce that the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) has chosen Armada to be its primary purchasing partner. Armada and AHF will work together to leverage the vast industry coverage and combined purchasing volumes for HIV/AIDS specialty medications. “We consider the new partnership with AHF a great synergistic opportunity for both organizations,” said Lawrence Irene, Armada CEO. Irene added, “This relationship greatly expands the already significant purchasing volume for HIV medications within the Armada membership, which can help open new doors with manufacturers of these products. Additionally, we will work closely to ensure that AHF maximizes all benefits from our diverse contract portfolio of products and services.”

“AHF is pleased to partner with Armada Health Care to help AHF sustain its mission. Currently, AHF provides medical care and services to more than 215,000 individuals in 28 countries worldwide,” said Scott Carruthers, National Director of Pharmacy Services for AIDS Healthcare Foundation. “Our ability to control costs directly impacts our ability to continue to bring cutting-edge medicine and advocacy to our patients — regardless of one’s ability to pay.”
