If you are a pharma company and you have launched a health product with an innovative packaging (drug packaging or medical device), or if you have enhanced the packaging of an existing health product, the Pharmapack Awards are made for you!
The Health Product category recognizes the pharma companies and the suppliers they have worked with to develop the innovative packaging or medical device for their health product.
Your product must have been made available to patients between January 2017 and today in any market worldwide. We will request that you send a sample of your product for us to submit it along with your application to the jury members.
Similar to the Exhibitor Innovation category, your product must meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Patient Adherence: does the product enhance patient safety or improve patient adherence?
- Patient-centricity: does the product improve the use or the end user experience?
- Economical Interest: does the product provide cost reduction?
- Sustainable: is the product eco-friendly: reusable material, less material?

PATIENT COMPLIANCE: OTEZLA® (APREMILAST) TITRATION PACK BY CELGENE
The Otezla® (apremilast) Titration Package was designed to maximize patient compliance to the titration dosing schedule. It contains three different strengths of Otezla® pills (10mg, 20mg, 30mg) with easy to read and understand instructions that promotes patient adherence and compliance to the Otezla® titration dosing regimen. It is designed with the three strengths of Otezla® tablets arranged in a pattern for the patient to safely titrate up to the daily recommended therapeutic dose with very little written instructions. The minimal text, along with pictorial aids and the tablet layout promotes patient compliance to the titration dosing schedule.
ECO-DESIGN: COMPACT BOX BY SANOFI PASTEUR & CAMPAK
How to improve at the same time environmental footprint, customer convenience, supply chain costs and industrial performance ?
Compact Box is the result of a close partnership between Sanofi Pasteur and CAMPAK
This innovation is a breakthrough which allows to reduce packaging volume by 50% and to get rid of PVC blisters. This has been achieved thanks to use of continuous motion technology applied to 100% cardboard single syringe packaging.
