Generika Drugstore is one of the famous generic drugstores in the Philippines. They are driven by an enduring social purpose: to help create a nation where every family can afford their basic healthcare needs. It was a mission that started thirteen years ago, when they were among the pioneers in the Philippines’ generics industry. They now have over 630 stores nationwide. They continue to provide Filipinos with safe, high-quality, and affordable generic medicines. Gabay Generika is Generika Drugstore’s beating heart. It is the philosophy behind every single thing that the company does. It is embodied by the passion of their pharmacists who only seek to guide and assist their customers. Their pharmacists do not just dispense drugs, they provide customers with expert advice. I am personally used to the usual routine of drugstores. They just sell the medicines, you wouldn’t even see their pharmacists. That’s not the case with Gabay Generika, their pharmacists are very hands-on with the customers. They even have a “Gamot Guide” which will automatically be printed after your purchase. The “Gamot Guide” provides everything the customer needs to know about how to intake the medicine they purchased.
Generika is now part of Ayala Healthcare Holdings Inc. They now have the bolstered capacity to provide even better healthcare services to the Filipino people.
At its core, Gabay Generika is a new line of value-adding PLUS services that include free blood pressure monitoring, affordable mobile laboratory offerings, and blood sugar testing. The most important aspect of Gabay Generika is the Gamot Guide which I mentioned earlier. It is a printed reminder for customers to help them understand how to better take their medicine. Combined with free patient consultations, customers will be equipped with all the information they need to safely and effectively use their medications.
This passion for patient well-being is best exemplified by Genrika’s own Actimed brand. This line of generic medications is of the highest quality and is sourced only from reputable manufacturers here and abroad. With all their drugs passing Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) standards, the generics they offer are guaranteed to be safe and as effective as their branded counterparts. Moving forward, Actimed will soon include wellness and nutraceutical products such as probiotics and health supplements all at a price point more affordable that what is currently available in the market.
Generika’s advocacies for better healthcare etends with MEDPadala, an innovative digital service that can help Filipinos from across the globe provide for their family’s healthcare needs. Through a web platform, gift certificates can be purchased and sent via SMS or email. These gift certificates don’t have have an expiry date so you don’t have to worry about wasting a single cent. This is especially helpful for Overseas Filipino Workers who want to ensure that their relatives have ample budget for medicine. The gift certificates are also available in every Generika outlet, and via partners such as LBC, Ventaja PayRemit, PayVenue, Ayannah, Beam and Go, and more.
In the next four to five years, Generika Drugstore aims to have over 1,000 outlets in the country. With Gabay Generika serving as a strong anchor for better public service, MEDPadala as a means to improve access to medication, and Actimed as an expanding line of quality generics, more Filipinos can now improve their overall well-being.
Last August 31, 2016, Generika showcased to the media these value-adding PLUS services while highlighting how they can uplift Filipino lives at the Fairmont Hotel, Makati, Philippines. It was attended by Generika and Ayala Executives who presented their vision for Generika, focusing on its continued advocacy for accessible healthcare products and services.
