Cooperative Structures

Generate jobs, enhance working and economic conditions of health professionals and ensure freedom of professional judgment

Owned by people who produce similar types of goods or services, such as pharmacists. The cooperative provides services to members and ensure the retailing of pharma products, even in rural or difficult areas. It is a solidarity model focused on adding value to pharmacists and improving equity in patient access to medicine.

As a response to a lack of healthcare provision, difficulties in access or failure of care to certain collectives, cooperative members provide themselves with the resources to be cared.

Owned and controlled by more than one type of membership class, such as patients, doctors, nurses, paramedics, non-health workers or public authorities.
