Date:5/21/2012

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J. and OLATHE, Kan., May 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX), a leading global medical technology company, and Heart to Heart International, a humanitarian medical aid nonprofit organization, are teaming up for their second joint volunteer initiative to strengthen healthcare in Haiti.  A team of 16 BD employees from around the world will build upon the progress made by their colleagues in 2011 during BD's first Volunteer Service Trip to Haiti.  This year, a new team of employees have volunteered to travel to Haiti for three weeks to continue BD's work with Heart to Heart partners at medical clinics to improve the country's ability to provide community healthcare services."This is BD's seventh volunteer trip to help strengthen healthcare capacity in underserved regions by sharing some of our Company's greatest assets – our employees and their expertise – with local care providers," said Vincent A. Forlenza, Chief Executive Officer and President, BD.  "Working with an organization like Heart to Heart, which has tremendous in-country knowledge, maximizes the impact BD can make in Haiti. Our ongoing commitment to the country's recovery reflects BD's purpose of 'Helping all people live healthy lives.'"

Following the January 2010 earthquake, BD immediately committed $5 million in product donations to assist in the relief and recovery efforts. To date, BD has sent more than $4.1 million in product donations to Haiti.  Heart to Heart has deployed nearly 700 medical volunteers in Haiti, delivered more than $43 million (U.S. wholesale) worth of life-saving medical aid, and treated more than 108,000 people — approximately 2,500 monthly — at clinical sites in Haiti.  The BD volunteers are working with medical staff to build on their existing patient care services by:
