Date:1/13/2010

ABBOTT PARK, Ill., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Abbott (NYSE: ABT) and its philanthropic foundation the Abbott Fund have committed to provide $1 million in initial humanitarian aid in response to the earthquake in Haiti.  This support includes grant funding and donations of critical pharmaceutical and nutritional products to strengthen the ability of humanitarian aid organizations to respond to immediate health needs in Haiti.  This includes an initial quantity of pharmaceutical and nutritional products that are already in use in a hospital in Haiti.

These relief efforts in Haiti build on Abbott's existing philanthropic partnerships to expand access to health care in the country.  Since 2007, Abbott and the Abbott Fund have provided more than $34 million in grants and product donations to help address health needs in Haiti, including maternal and child health, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and malnutrition.

"The recent earthquake has had a devastating impact on Haiti's limited health care system, which was already facing significant challenges," said Catherine V. Babington, president, the Abbott Fund.  "Building on our existing partnerships with humanitarian organizations in Haiti, we are providing funding and product donations to help address the immense and immediate health needs."
