Clinigen’s roots began in the UK. Formed in 2010 through the merger of three successful companies: Keats Healthcare, which became Clinigen (Clinical Trial Services) CTS; Clinigen Healthcare which became Clinigen (Global Access Programs) GAP; and Clinigen, which became Clinigen (Specialty Pharmaceuticals) SP, Clinigen’s unique business model was built to provide access to both licensed and unlicensed medicines to patients all over the world. Clinigen achieved exponential growth, acquiring four products by 2014 and, in owning its own medicines, gaining unique insights into the challenges pharmaceutical and biotech companies face and unparalleled experience in ensuring the highest quality control and compliance standards. In 2015, Clinigen acquired Idis Limited and the Link Healthcare Group. Not only did these acquisitions strengthen Clinigen by bringing almost 5 decades of experience; Clinigen also became the global leader in providing ethical, compliant access to unlicensed medicines, expanding its capability to provide access to medicines for patients in the AAA (Africa, Australasia and Asia) region.
