Costs associated with treating chronic illnesses are a major driver of rising health care costs in America. For many of these chronic illnesses, medications are the most cost-effective course of treatment. As the most trusted, accessible medication experts, community pharmacists are ideally positioned to address adherence and keep patients healthy.

NCPA is dedicated to providing pharmacists with the tools and resources needed to improve adherence through its Pharmacists Advancing Medication Adherence (PAMA) Initiative.
