In The Community
Supporting our communities around the world
As a company dedicated to saving lives and improving the quality of life for people with rare and serious conditions, we believe that helping our patient communities and advancing knowledge in our therapy areas is part of our Corporate Responsibility.
We also recognize that we have a role to play in contributing to humanitarian programs and relief efforts around the world, and that closer to home, our responsibilities extend to supporting critical needs and sustainable development in the local communities where we operate.
In seeking to achieve our community objectives, we look for opportunities that utilize our unique capabilities and involve our employees and other stakeholders. We provide monetary or product donations, sponsorships, research and education grants and scholarships, as well as in-kind support to worthy and credible non-profit organizations. We enter into strategic partnerships with these organizations where this will enhance the overall effort. We also match and support certain contributions made by our employees to their local communities.
