What is The Mission of Your Organization?

Drugviu's mission is to make medicine inclusive. Pharmaceutical clinical trials have low participants of communities of color(Asian, Black, Latino, Native American, Indigenous People). The result in little meaningful data to understand medications impact. This is a problem for patients, physicians and pharma. Our solution is capturing real world medication experiences from these communities. To close the loop we have two paid data subscriptions for physicians and pharmaceutical companies.
