BD and Heart to Heart International Launch Volunteer Service Trip to Help "Build Back Better" in Haiti
Date:6/9/2011

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J. and OLATHE, Kan., June 9, 2011 /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, announced a joint volunteer initiative to strengthen healthcare in Haiti.  A team of 13 BD associates from around the world have volunteered to travel to Haiti for three weeks and work with Heart to Heart partners at medical clinics to improve the country's ability to provide healthcare services for its people.  

"Over the years that BD has been sending volunteers to underserved regions such as Haiti, we have learned a great deal about what works best to improve healthcare conditions in these environments – most notably, partnering with excellent on-the-ground organizations such as Heart to Heart," said Edward J. Ludwig, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, BD. "Through the BD Volunteer Service Trip Program, we're able to leverage the medical expertise of our employees with the in-country knowledge of Heart to Heart's staff to 'build back better' healthcare for Haitians.  Our commitment to Haiti'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 $3.9 million in product donations to Haiti.  Heart to Heart has deployed nearly 400 medical volunteers in Haiti, delivered more than $37.5 million (U.S. wholesale) worth of life-saving medical aid, and treated nearly 70,000 people — approximately 2,500 weekly — at clinical sites in Port-au-Prince, Leogane and Fondwa.  The BD volunteers are working with medical staff from these locations to build on their existing patient care service
