Message from the President

Xavier Darcos, President of the Sanofi Espoir Foundation

From poverty and epidemics to wars and mass migrations, it is impossible to ignore the afflictions that demoralize the lives of millions of people, impeding their development potential and adding a huge financial burden to the economies of their countries. In a global context of interdependence, development challenges are an obvious shared priority now that insecurity and disease are constantly gaining ground, even in wealthy countries.

Working with its partners, the Foundation develops prevention and access to care programs tailored to local realities. Committed to efficiency, it seeks to anticipate and understand so that it can act more effectively. Each project is designed to scale up and lead to economically sustainable health solutions, wherever the needs are felt. By virtue of the quality of the work carried out and the progress made in its areas of expertise, the Foundation is now widely recognized both by healthcare institutions and the countries that benefit from its programs.
