Teva Respiratory Supports World Asthma Day by Providing FREE QVAR(R) to Those Who Need It Most
Date:5/5/2009

NORTH WALES, Pa., May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- In support of World Asthma Day, May 5, 2009, Teva Respiratory has extended its partnership with Direct Relief International, a nonprofit humanitarian medical relief organization, to donate thousands of units of QVAR(R) (Beclomethasone HFA), an Inhaled Corticosteroid (ICS) to its Charitable Medicine Access Program.

With the additional QVAR donation, we can now ensure that patients have full asthma control and the ability to manage the underlying cause of the disease--inflammation," said Mark Salyer, General Manager of Teva's Respiratory Division. "We recognize that access to treatment is an issue for many patients and we are committed to asthma care and ensuring that patient needs are met."

Direct Relief, NACH and NAFC together identify health clinics where the need is greatest - where the majority of patients cannot afford to pay for their medication -- and distribute the inhalers accordingly. This process ensures greater patient access to medication, reduces the administrative burden associated labor costs, and provides fo
