Prescription Donation Program
Clinicians and Local Public Health Agencies that have unused TB medications are able to send them to the Iowa Prescription Drug Corporation (IPDC) for certification for re-use by the Iowa TB Control Program. Once meds have been certified they are sent back to our pharmacy to be reissued by our program.
Once the form below is completed, mail it and the medications to the address in the upper right corner of the form. The form only needs to be completed once and will be kept on file at IPDC for any future donations.
