Strengthening Health Systems After Natural Disasters by Providing Critically Needed Medicine and Grants
We support humanitarian relief partners to help those affected by natural disasters and to strengthen health systems. In 2017 AbbVie’s product donations reached 61 countries for disaster relief efforts, medical missions or planned product donations. Also in 2017, AbbVie and the AbbVie Foundation committed more than $4 million to hurricane disaster relief as well as earthquake relief in Mexico. In 2018, AbbVie committed $100 million to accelerate recovery efforts in Puerto Rico following hurricanes Irma and Maria.
