The Holding Company (Equity Pharma Holdings) in 2010, merged with Link Medical Products to form the Link Group, expanding the Group’s reach with the AAA region. The Link Group was acquired by the Clinigen Group in 2015, significantly strengthening Clinigen’s global presence. With this acquisition, Clinigen became the global leader in providing ethical, compliant access to unlicensed medicines and expanded its capability to provide access to medicines for patients in the AAA (Africa, Australasia and Asia) region.
