340B Program

The 340B Program is an instrumental tool in supporting the elimination of infectious diseases, enabling programs to expand and improve services, address health equity, and reduce health disparities. It is a federal program authorized by Section 340B(a) (8) of the Public Health Service Act that enables covered entities to stretch federal resources as far as possible, providing outpatient medications to covered entities at significantly reduced prices.
