Chugai was awarded a Medal with Dark Blue Ribbon in recognition of its support of healthcare professionals in Japan in 2020 in the COVID-19 pandemic. The Medal with Dark Blue Ribbon is one of Japan’s medals of honor awarded to an individual or organization such as a corporation who donates private funds for the public good. Of our donations in support of the fight against COVID-19, donation to The Nippon Foundation, an approved public interest group for the Medal with Dark Blue Ribbon, was recognized with this medal of honor.
Chugai made a donation to “LOVE POCKET FUND,” a project against COVID-19, run by The Nippon Foundation. It supports healthcare professionals in Japan who are dedicated to the treatment and prevention of COVID-19.

In addition to this, we have made donations in support of the Tokyo and Kanagawa prefectures, as well as the Red Cross Society of China in support of the fight against COVID-19.

While continuing to place the highest priority on ensuring the stable supply of drugs to patients, we are also committed to preventing the spread of COVID-19.
