Get to know our mission, vision, and history.
In January 2019, Safest Drug incorporated as a nonprofit with just one idea in mind – – to help make sure no one ever died or became injured from medication by deploying charitable efforts that would reach every part of the United States.
By June 2019, we decided on a Mission:
To prevent and alleviate medication-related illness, disability, and death (medication harm) in the United States.
At the same time, we set our Vision:
To one day see a society free of medication harm.
With a percentage of medication use being associated with over 100,000 deaths and millions of injuries annually, we approach medication harm as a preventable and urgent public health problem.
A core belief we hold is that by working at the community level, we can create “medication safe” communities — collaborating with an array of community supporters, partners, and individuals in government, healthcare, industry, academia.
Within less than a year since our founding, we have significantly grown our volunteer workforce and have launched several initiatives to help people and communities make medication harm a priority with prevention and action.
