Health Care Sustainability in Europe
+

AbbVie is working with national and pan-European government agencies to address the changing disease burden and promote more effective and sustainable health care systems. We actively contribute to the European Commission's Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing, with the goal to increase the average healthy life span within the EU by two years by 2020.


Fit For Work Europe
+

AbbVie is a founding partner and sponsor of the Fit for Work Europe Coalition, a unique multi-stakeholder group dedicated to advancing policies and clinical practices regarding musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which contribute to 60% of permanent work incapacities in the EU. We work with patients, physicians, policymakers and social partners to raise awareness through evidence-based research and recommendations for addressing the burden of MSDs throughout Europe.


Disaster Relief
+

AbbVie and AbbVie Foundation provided more than $1.5 million in critically-needed product donations and $550,000 in cash grants to respond to disasters in 2013. These disasters included the China earthquake, Oklahoma tornado, cyclone in India, earthquake in Pakistan, earthquake and typhoon in the Philippines and the tornadoes in Illinois and Midwest area of the United States. For example, in November 2013, AbbVie provided several product donations of antibiotics and other medications in the wake of typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines while the AbbVie Foundation provided cash grants.  AbbVie works with humanitarian relief partners to provide critically needed product donations in response to natural disasters. Our partners include Direct Relief, AmeriCares, Heart to Heart International, MAP International and Project Hope.


Global Health
+

We aim to leverage our history working with partners to build health care capacity globally. Through the AbbVie Foundation’s Global AIDS Care program, we’ve reached more than six million children and adults and trained 3,800 health care workers. The Foundation has supported AMPATH with the largest door-to-door HIV testing program ever done in East Africa and reached 850,000 people. We will build on these successes and enter into new partnerships to target more diseases.

Complementing our partnerships to increase access and promote sustainability, AbbVie provides educational grants to support health care providers with training in key areas, such as reducing the lifetime cost of treatment for rheumatoid arthritis and improving patient education for kidney disease. We also support a specialty residency focused on studying and improving health care outcomes.
