Providing Health Outreach Programs in India
Mylan has brought health outreach programs in India that have impacted the lives of more than 1 million people over the past five years, including through our multi-specialty health camps that provide education and help identify gaps in care. One example is Mylan’s partnership with the Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences (ILBS) in India for the “Healthy Liver, Healthy Delhi” initiative which serves to create awareness of liver health and facilitate screening of hepatitis B and C. Mylan has funded a state-of-the-art mobile diagnostic unit for detection of liver-related disorders, offering free screenings through the program’s mobile clinics.
Other recent efforts have included implementing a comprehensive sanitation and hygiene program in schools, establishing an Affordable Cancer Care program where healthcare professionals were trained to screen for and treat cancer at district-level hospitals and improve care given to cancer patients, and sponsoring a TB screening camp of more than 1 million people as part of a national mission to eradicate the disease by training health workers and providing ease of access to medicines. To date, more than 6 million people have been screened for oral cancer with Mylan’s support under the Affordable Cancer Care Program.
Overall, Mylan’ s programs in health, community welfare and education have impacted the lives of more than 11 million people in India over the past five years.
