The planned transition of the Glivec International Patient Assistance Program program to CMLPath to CareTM under the umbrella of the Max Access Solutions model, launched in July of 2017, required the organization to stock up its inventory to ensure a continuous supply of medicines to patients in the program.

While 50 out of the 67 countries to be transitioned did so in 2017, at year end, the organization was holding a substantial volume of inventory on hand while we sought import permits and other necessary regulatory documentation for distribution at the different sites.

Valuation of Gifts-In-Kind

Prior to 2017, The Max Foundation’s fair value of donated pharmaceuticals was based on prices from Thomas Reuters Red Book Actual Wholesale Price (AWP). During 2017, The Max Foundation obtained fair value data from a third-party source which reflects wholesale prices available in multiple relevant international markets. The gifts-in-kind are recorded, by drug, based on the estimated fair value in the relevant international market of highest volume.
