Abbott Honored With Scrip Award for Leadership in Corporate Social Responsibility
Date:11/4/2011

LONDON, Nov. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Scrip, a leading global pharmaceutical and biotech news organisation, honored Abbott and its philanthropic foundation, the Abbott Fund, with a 2011 Scrip Award for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) at Scrip's seventh annual awards ceremony in London on Thursday evening.  The award was presented in recognition of the significant results achieved through a decade-long, public-private partnership with the Government of Tanzania to modernize the country's health system and address critical needs in the fight against HIV/AIDS and other life-long diseases.  

Unique Public-Private Partnership Highlights Social Innovation

"We're proud to receive this Scrip CSR Award on behalf of our Abbott Fund colleagues and the Government of Tanzania," said John B. Thomas, President, Abbott Fund.  "Over the past decade, we've combined our collective expertise and resources to fundamentally and sustainably upgrade the country's health care system.  This collaborative approach has supported nationwide improvements in addressing lifelong diseases, while also strengthening broader health care services provided to all Tanzanians."  

A key component of the programme is the involvement of highly specialised Abbott employee volunteers.  This includes lab technicians who have provided extensive training and mentoring for lab staff in Tanzania, as well as contributions from other experts working in construction, engineering, facility and equipment maintenance, health care management, information technology, security and waste management. To date, Abbott employees have contributed more than 10,000 hours of on-the-ground support for the initiative.  In addition, Abbott and the Abbott Fund have invested more than pounds Sterling 55 million (U.S. $90 million) in the Tanzania programme.

Decade-Long Partnership Provides Sustainable Improvements in Care
