For seven decades, LIF has had a rich history in medicines production.
In 1947, LIF started their activities producing medicines for some hospital pharmacies in Santa Fe city and became a reference in public medicines production across the years.
Thus at present LIF has an important participation in Santa Fe.
In the last five years, LIF produced and delivered 334 million drug units for primary healthcare in this province, which means 94% of the drug units used by the provincial government for primary healthcare.
Once this primary objective was reached, LIF also produced and delivered medicines to other provinces and cities. Bahía Blanca and Mar del Plata (Buenos Aires province), Concordia (Entre Ríos province), Misiones, Río Negro and the Health Ministry of the Nation were some places where LIF delivered medicines through bids or direct purchase order.
This outstanding growth in medicines production was possible through an important and continual investment in machinery, equipment and building.
Since 2008, Santa Fe’s Government investment reached about US$ 1.5 million.
Nowadays, LIF research and develop different medicines for chronic diseases as diabetes, hypertension, pulmonary disorder and pain treatment with a considerably impact on the economic budget in health in Santa Fe and other places.
