We aim to leverage our history working with partners to build health care capacity globally. For example,
- AbbVie and the AbbVie Foundation’s support for Academic Model Providing Access To Healthcare (AMPATH) has helped build an innovative home-based HIV testing and counselling program in East Africa, reaching 1+ million people.
- Through the AbbVie Foundation’s Global AIDS Care program, we’ve reached 7+ million children and adults and trained 3,800 health care workers.
- AbbVie partners with the Philippines Society of Newborn Medicine and government agencies to strengthen local capacity and reduce prevalence of Respiratory Distress Syndrome (RDS), the second leading cause of infant mortality in the country. Together we’re creating a national registry to track disease rates, a crucial first step in controlling RDS.
We will build on these successes and enter into new partnerships to target more diseases.
