When big pharma offers the hand of friendship and support to those in need, the results can be inspiring.
In just ten weeks the world’s leading pharmaceutical and clinical research organisations will gather in Barcelona to share knowledge, stimulating and challenging each other to move forward in the quest for better, more focused patient care. eyeforpharma Barcelona takes place from March 31st to April 2nd. Conversis is of course exhibiting, along with our many long-standing industry partners and friends. As we count down to the event Conversis is celebrating the innovators whose impact on Life Sciences made them category winners at the prestigious eyeforpharma 2019 awards.
Most Valuable Collaboration
Teva Pharmaceuticals, the world’s leading generic drug manufacturer, has a long-standing partnership with Direct Relief, a charity that exists to help people whose lives have been derailed by poverty and natural disaster. In the United States this partnership has delivered vital aid to the Volunteers in Medicine programme that offers a clinical safety-net to uninsured Americans. The support that Teva and Direct Relief offer around the world is equally impressive.
The Safety Net
Since its formation in 1948 Direct Relief has offered a beacon of hope to victims of natural disaster. In April 2015 they reached out to Nepal when the Gorkha earthquake killed almost 9,000 people, injured almost 22,000, and razed hundreds of thousands of homes, schools, businesses, and hospitals to the ground. Teva’s support was instrumental in Direct Relief being able to deliver 170 tons of medicines and supplies, worth over $50 million, straight to the point of need and delivery for earthquake survivors. It also opened the door for over $3 million in cash grants to be delivered to locally run organizations to aid recovery and reconstruction.
Direct Relief has offered a lifeline to those most urgently in need for over 70 years. Teva Pharmaceuticals is playing an admirable role as their global partner and we congratulate both on their eyeforpharma award.
