Healthcare access improvement project in Myanmar
To help fulfill its mission of contributing to the medical community and human health around the world, Chugai participates in a number of global health initiatives. One example is Access Accelerated (AA).* In November 2018, as part of AA, Chugai launched a project to improve access to healthcare in Myanmar in cooperation with the non-governmental organization AMDA Multisectoral and Integrated Development Services (AMDA-MINDS). The goals of this project include establishment of safe conditions for childbirth in regions where the infant mortality rate is a serious problem, and provision of mobile clinics to help prevent non-communicable diseases (cancer, diabetes, hypertension, etc.) in regions where it is difficult to access health services.
This project is being conducted in a limited area and time period, but the effects and influence will be shared and discussed among the participating organizations and companies. We think of it as a pilot program for strengthening cooperation between residents and local government agencies and local hospitals, and for building sustainable healthcare systems.
- *Access Accelerated is a global initiative established by more than 20 pharmaceutical companies around the world, including Chugai. It is aimed at improving access to prevention, diagnosis and treatment of non-communicable diseases in low- and middle-income countries.
The Chugai Group upholds its mission “Dedicate ourselves to adding value by creating and delivering innovative products and services for the medical community and human health around the world.”
As part of this mission, Chugai considers it a duty to contribute to global health by continuously creating new products for unmet medical needs, and working to improve access to healthcare.
