3 ACTION AREAS

To meet health needs that are inadequately addressed and to combat poverty, the Sanofi Espoir Foundation has set itself a three-pronged mission: enabling the poor, and also the victims of humanitarian disasters to have access to healthcare, while drawing attention to the expertise of the Sanofi Group, and developing employees commitment.

CREATING A LONG-TERM VISION OF ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE

Health is a human right. Yet progress made in recent years is far too imbalanced, both between different countries and even inside some countries, due to weak national health schemes and only limited access to healthcare for the most disadvantaged members of different societies. The Foundation is therefore dedicated to building partnerships that meet the basic needs of prevention, education, and access to healthcare because health is also a major development challenge. The three key areas are:

  1. THE FIGHT AGAINST CHILDHOOD CANCER
  2. THE FIGHT AGAINST MATERNAL AND NEONATAL MORTALITY
  3. THE ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE FOR THE MOST VULNERABLE

RESPONDING TO HUMANITARIAN EMERGENCIES

As humanitarian crises are by definition unpredictable and often have tragic consequences, they require a fast, efficient and generous response from the international community. The Foundation plays an important role as a healthcare partner in coordinating different forms of aid. In the event of a disaster, and depending on the identified needs, we respond by donating medicines and vaccines, as well as making financial donations to stakeholders on the ground to carry out emergency and post-emergency actions alongside local victims.

EMPLOYEES COMMITMENT

A sense of solidarity is grounded in the values of sharing, and forms a source of individual and collective enrichment. It is an integral part of Sanofi’s DNA. The Foundation therefore encourages employee’s commitment and calls on their generosity during humanitarian crises or to support access to healthcare for people living in extreme poverty. And if they so wish, each employee can apply their personal expertise and take on a one-off or even a long-term consignment by volunteering for or to get involved during the Sanofi season of solidarity.
